Abstract

Usually when we use the word "diet" in contemporary culture, the first thing that comes to mind is the slimming diet. And, with it, everything in the collective imagination: calories, reducing quantities, giving up quantities, giving up the tastiest foods, and also instructions, manuals periodic checks, scales and so on. But the word 'diet' comes from the ancient Greek dìaita meaning 'way of life', 'daily habits'. What is meant by diet, then, can also be extended in reference to today: not only, in the strict sense, a programme to lose weight but a way of life, a way of regulating one's day, food choices, physical exercise, body care. This is how we will consider it: in the sense of regime daily regimen, organisation, trend governed by some principle. In other words, a regime of meaning.
