The word, "diet" means way of life
That's right, the way we Americans use the word diet is actually incorrect. How would you like to be on the "Cookie Diet" as a way of life? How about the new diet craze called the "Pegan Diet?" which is a cross between vegan and the Paleo diet. By the way, the cookie diet according to the Today.com article below is a terribly restrictive diet to help you lose weight short term but with horrible side effects including gastro-intestinal disruptions. Sounds good? Not to me-it seems insane but plenty of smart people wanting to lose weight are trying it.
After reading the article below I do want to add that the one "diet" that doctors and nutritionist agree is good for us is the Mediterranean diet/lifestyle. When you analyze the use of olive oil, fish (omega 3s) and whole foods it makes plain health sense. just watch your portion sizes!
