Technically, everyone is on diet. The foods that you regularly eat can be considered your diet. They may be considered healthy or unhealthy, geared towards weight-loss, wheat-free or high-sugar. You may have what is generally considered as a good diet or a bad one. However, it seems that the word 'diet' has become synonymous with weight-loss.
Weight-loss is the last thing that I want. I am really happy with the weight that I am, thank you very much! I would of course like to tone up a bit (beach body, please), but gaining muscle tone will, if anything, mean that I gain a little bit of weight rather than lose it.
I am not 'dieting', nor have I ever 'dieted'. I like to enjoy the food I eat (and boy, do I!), and ensure that it is clean, nutritious and tasty. To many people, this seems to be perceived as dieting. In fact, I am a massive advocate of not dieting. Although I understand that some people who have big goals need an initially drastic diet change to kick-start their weight-loss perhaps, I still firmly believe that the key to being healthy is about having a balanced diet for the long-term, not just a number of days or weeks.
