What is the meaning of DIET?

We strive to encourage people to live a healthy lifestyle. This of course, includes a healthy diet, good exercise regime and generally sensible way of life. I just read this post by Deb about the Kimkins diet that was really scary.

People, a diet is not to DIE Tomorrow. According to Dictionary.com, a diet means:

a particular selection of food, esp. as designed or prescribed to improve a person’s physical condition or to prevent or treat a disease

It is a selection of food, it is not an ABSENCE of food. If it is weight-loss you want, there are many ways you can lose weight and still remain strong and healthy. Just on our small blog alone, we already have a few nice healthy recipes like the Chicken-Alfalfa Sprout Sandwich, Fresh Pineapple-Alfalfa Fruit Juice, and more. A diet is not about a lack of food, but rather, is about a wise selection of food. Read Vivienne’s take on the 10 Great Benefits of Eating Alfalfa Sprouts, and 10 Great Benefits of Eating Raw Food and Juice.

As you can see, there are many beneficial ways of enjoying your food and keeping yourself healthy at the same time. Don’t resort to drastic measures. If you are clinically obese, you can consult a qualified doctor or dietitian. But don’t go around chasing every fad that appears over the horizon. You have only one body, treat it well.

    I completely agree! It’s so easy to forget that diet really means “enjoying your food and keeping yourself healthy at the same time”. Great post!

    So true. It’s always difficult to use the word diet without someone thinking it’s a fad. It truely is a “selection of foods.” You hit it on the head.
