No, the word does not come from the Latin "to die"! Ya don't need to get crazy w it. Unless ya are crazy with it, then ya should probably stop. Seen em all come and go and come back again and again. They've all failed and worked at one time or another for somebody. Kinda like guns and ammo? How easy is it to live w day in and day out for the rest of your life is what really counts? I eat mostly low/no fat dairy, lean meat, fish, poulty, whole grains and cereals, nuts and seeds, fruits and vegetables. Milkshakes, banana splits, pizza, and beer fit right in just fine on my diet too, I just don't have 'em for breakfast every day. Maintain a weight of around 150 or less on about 3000 calories a day I'm fairly active and come from good stock. If you're a spud on the sofa and a mut, might have to pay more attention to how much of what ya shovel in and how often though. But I still dont think it's healthy to get too restrictive or too serious about it. I mean, if ya aren't having any fun, it will show one way or another. ;b Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
