Adams, the author of several bestselling healthy living books says, “The struggle to focus, stay present and be really, deeply connected with others in this hyper-tech-connected world is a real and growing issue,” she adds, “Bill Hicks noted that watching TV was like taking a can of black spray paint to your third eye, comparatively, using Facebook is like taking a Dyson to your free time!” She hopes The Facebook Diet will ‘tickle’ readers into realising how unhealthy some of their social media use really is.
Forthcoming titles in The Unplug Series® for 2014 include: The Twitter Diet, The YouTube Diet and The Instagram Diet.
