The word diet often ring a bell in people’s head about deprivation of certain foods that they love. Eating a particular diet does not mean being on a restrictive food intake plan; it can simply mean that you are eating vegetarian or vegan. So the word diet does not necessarily relate to dieting per se.
When we are speaking about healthy diets, the phrase “we are what we eat” is as relevant as it can be. Whatever we eat influences our bodies in many ways. Chronic diseases such as obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, dental disease, and even cancer can often be related to malnutrition. Malnutrition does not mean lacking food; it means the food you have been eating is off-balance and utterly bad for you.
So whatever diet you plan to eat, make sure that it is balanced and adequate for your type of body and the activities that you include in your everyday life.
