The meaning of Diet in dream | Dream interpretation
Searching for balance in eating habits; need for establishing balance in spiritual, emotional, physical, mental nurturing. Harsh or rigid diets reflect self-punishment. Moderation is the key.
The meaning here is as dreary as its practice; a dream concerning this exercise in restraint predicts upcoming financial reverses, unless you are actually in one, in which case you are probably just hungry.
Dreams of a being on a diet symbolize discipline, control, sacrifice and that you are becoming mindful about your consumption of energy, food, and entertainment. You are learning to say, “No” to that which is not healthy for you, so that you can say “Yes” to that which supports you.
1. Self-discipline, attention to consumption—often regarding food, usually emotional.
3. Need to take control, usually positive.
To dream that you are on a diet suggests that you are punishing yourself, or feeling restrained from what you really want to do. Alternatively, this dream may reflect your self-control and willingness to give up the things that are unhealthy in your life.
Literally dieting, but not necessarily food
To diet is to limit the intake of food toward the end of maintaining some control over the shape of your body. This consciousness can run the gamut from healthy, balanced self-care to deeply destructive restriction combined with compulsivity. Your personal relationship to food must be factored into your interpretation of such a dream. Wherever you land, a diet is about restraint and control of something that is fundamentally about sustenance and nurturance. What are you denying yourself in order to get what you want? Is this a good idea? These are the questions to ask if dieting is featured in a dream.
