    I'm trying to come up with a working definition of the word "diet"

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    It's hard to explain to people how you're losing the weight, right? They keep asking if you're on a "diet." But it's not a diet. It doesn't feel like a diet. You're not hungry all the time. You don't feel cranky and miserable. You actually feel better. It feels natural. It feels right. It feels like this is what you should've been doing all along. It's not a temporary measure.

    So what is a diet?

    diet (n): Any program of weight loss that requires you to ignore the signals your body is sending you.

    DIET = "DIE"T

    Not really a definition, but the word "Die" comes to me when I think of "Diet"

    Have you tried the dictionary? There are probably two noun definitions and one or two verb defs and some adjective and maybe adverb definitions also. I guess you're looking for the snarky Primal Blueprint Dieter definition.
    Beware of fake meat.

    Well, we wouldn't want to be snarky, would we?

    The dictionary definition doesn't cover what I've been doing. That's why I'm trying to think of a new one. Didn't mean to annoy you.

    You can say "I just eat real food now. Not for momentary weight loss, but for my health for my whole life."

    I just tell people "I changed my way of eating."

    Usually they ask, well what does that mean. Then I explain it as briefly as I can- I listen to my body, I eat only real food (meat, veggies, fruit & nuts), eat when I'm hungry and not when I'm not... etc.

    Our diet is what we eat. We are all on a diet, often beginning with mother's milk. Some people's diet is mindless and crappy. Some people's diets are mindful and crappy. Some work

    Diet can mean "Weight loss plan", but it also means "Way of eating".
    Example: 'The diet of the koala is eucalyptus'
