What does Low Crap Diet consider to be crap?

Crap is a slang word referring to garbage, junk, and litter. It can also be used to describe exaggeration and propaganda. You’ve probably used the word to express how you’re feeling the morning after a big party or to describe all the stuff in your garage. You may have even used the word to refer to a redundant project your boss has asked you to work on. The word can communicate a feeling of overwhelm when life’s details are closing in on you. And it’s a great word to use when you feel you have been treated unfairly. 

Our world is full of crap: unusable products (aka garbage); bad ideas (aka good intentions with unforeseen consequences); lack of respect for each other (aka poor manners); lack of respect for our earth (aka ignorance).
