        I'm totally skinny, and I've never been on a diet.

        Diet is a word that describes one's eating habits. I have absolutely no need to lose weight, but most of the year, I'm on a strict diet.

        I shy away from processed foods- not completely, but most of the time. I eat whole grains, whole grain breads and cereals (like old fashioned oatmeal), fish, poultry, "mostly" raw vegetables (to improve the glycemic index and glycemic load), many types of beans (except soy- too high in phyto estrogen for me) some select fruits, high quality whey protein and casein drinks.

        I consume a minimum of five feedings per day, but most days consist of seven. This improves my anabolic state, plus it mitigates insulin secretion. Remember, exhaustion of the pancreas is what leads to type II diabetes.

        I spend the better part of the year at around 188-190 lbs. When I need to drop into my weight class @ 181 lbs, I simply back off the carbohydrates  slightly, about six weeks out. I'm a powerlifter, not a bodybuilder. It's weight that's most important to me at contest time, not how lean I appear.

        I do choose to remain lean throughout the entire year, though. Aesthetics are still important to me, not "absolute strength".

          Diet is a word that describes one's eating habits.

          Diet as used by the OP looks to mean - changing eating habits in order to lose weight.

            Still, by definition, diet is what I've described. Point taken, but the fact remains, diet is the way one eats. I can see your point, though.

          Really? Not only are you a spammer, but you know absolutely nothing about proper diet! 450 calories per day? Virtually no adult can live healthily on twice that many calories! Catabolism would run rampant throughout your entire muscular system, and cortisol levels would be so elevated that every bit of food would be stored down as fat!

            Joe - I tried to return your email 3 times but for some reason it's undeliverable.  I had asked you about exercises.  Now that I see your knowledge of how the body relates to food, I'm convinced you are the expert.  I've been studying the effects of food since 1975, personally of course, and try to stay on the cutting edge of information.  Also eat 90% organic and raw, very little processed food, supplement, and filtered water.  I'm on the road all week and back to college so exercise has been on the back burner for about 4 years.  Do you have another email I can try?

    helpful hanna, the reason all of the things that seem to taste the best are often the worst for you is because our food has been transformed from its natural state and instead of our taste buds craving healthy fruits and vegetables, they've been over stimulated by things like refined sugar, high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, and other processed junk that harms the body.

    I have personally learned that you can retrain the taste buds when you make it a habit to eat healthier and avoid adding too much to the food you consume. I used to eat a 10 pack of reese's like it was nothing, but now I'll eat fruit and yogurt instead.

    As far as nutrition goes, most of the world has to be re-educated to rebuild healthy eating habits.  However, this would be very costly and almost impossible. Many of the food industry companies use ingredients that are known to have negative side effects, but we somehow still eat them. If everyone in this world eat somewhat like "joecseko" was describing, people in this world would be healthier.
