I don't use the term "dieting" when talking to others about my lifestyle because of what THEY might interpret it as.... a specific way of eating (usually calorie and food restriction) for a LIMITED portion of time to achieve a goal and then you fall off the wagon, LOL

I just say my way of eating, or more to the point: portion control which most (esp) Americans have no concept of.

I understand the definition of "diet" is more correctly to describe one's food intake but i don't think the average person thinks of it in those terms which is why i don't use it w/others.
