d) a regimen of eating and drinking sparingly so as to reduce one’s weight
Three out of the four definitions listed have a negative connotation. The first one is the only one that makes any sense. Do you want to get into a habit, have food prescribed, oreatsparingly? The simple day in and day out of eating can indeed be called your diet. But why not call it your lifestyle?
A lifestyle is a choice and that choice is made only by YOU!
The word diet is thrown around on a daily basis and truly is what some people live by.They start a new diet, it runs its course, then they fall off the wagon. A little time goes by and they start-up on the next newest diet they have heard about. Round and round they go on this vicious cycle. The first step to getting out of this cycle is by making a choice.
YOU make the choice to live a lifestyle!
