Do You Know What Diet Actually Is?

Before I continue, I'd like to ask if you really know what is diet. Many people associate the word "diet" with a restricted food regime BUT THAT'S NOT TRUE.

Here's the Wikipedia's definition for diet:

In nutrition, the diet is the sum of food consumed by a person or other organism.[1] Dietary habits are the habitual decisions an individual or culture makes when choosing what foods to eat. Although humans are omnivores, each culture holds some food preferences and some food taboos. Individual dietary choices may be more or less healthy. Proper nutrition requires the proper ingestion and equally important, the absorption of vitamins, minerals, and fuel in the form of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Dietary habits and choices play a significant role in health and mortality, and can also define cultures and play a role in religion.

So diet is just the way we eat. And it's our personal choice to have healthy and tasty meals every day which also helps to be in a good shape. I also suggest to be creative about it and to add a little fun to your diet=food=nutrition.
