The Four Letter Word


   1.   The usual food and drink of a person or animal.
   2.   A regulated selection of foods, as for medical reasons or cosmetic weight loss.
   3.   Something used, enjoyed, or provided regularly: subsisted on a diet of detective novels during his vacation.

No where in that definition does it say that diet means to starve yourself until you are so hungry that you binge. It doesn't say to go on fad diets were consumption is limited to cabbage soup or just chicken. No were in there does it say that chocolate is a four letter word or that french fries are the enemy.

What I see is that a diet is our normal consumption of not just food. I think it's time we turn that "diet" into a lifestyle and be good to ourselves.

What do you all think?


  1. I completly agree. My eating style is that I will have chocolate and other things but that I need to learn how to manage them.

  2. I hate that word. I've noticed some people (some assholes!) blogging about how the band is a diet, but I disagree! :(

  3. Maybe it's a lifestyle, too!
    From the word origins....
