Perhaps the reason why "Die" is in the word "Diet" is because people who go on diets are trying to lose weight. As such, as they lose the weight, cells in the body die and are expelled from the body. That is why "die" is in the word "diet".I do not know why. But I can see where you are coming from. Nonetheless, I should have put "Lifestyle" after "Daniel".

"Lifestyle" is the real word one should be looking for, with regards to improving one's health.For thousands of years the obesity did not exist.
