diverse diets

Vegetarian. Vegan. Gluten-free. No-/low-carb. Paleo. Clean eating. Possibly fruitarian.

These are all diets. By diet, I don’t mean a plan to lose weight. (Well, except for the no- or low-carb–that probably is mostly to lose weight.) I might be naive, but I think that people tend to adopt the vegetarian or paleo (for instance) diets more for their health benefits or moral reasons than to actually lose weight. Diet can simply mean the selection of food a person or group eats, with having nothing at all to do with losing weight. Diets for losing weight are like South Beach, Atkins, or Jenny Craig, at least to me.

Anyways, I’m curious about these different diet choices. After I do my half-marathon in a couple of weeks, I’m going to be trying some of these out. (I don’t think changing my diet so close to such an event is a smart idea.) There is no rhyme or reason to this little experiment of diverse diets. I guess I’m hoping the experience will help me discover new dishes and to try new things. It will be interesting to see if changing my food choices will make any noticeable differences, physically or otherwise, to my body. It might just change the way I feel.
