The only problem with the word diet is that people associate it with a short term idea, when in reality it simply means everything you consume. No matter what a person eats, that's their 'diet.' Getting that point across to a person is the easiest way to highlight the concept of fads and short-term eating plans.
Most of my carbs come in the form of a PoWO shake, usually made with a couple bananas, almond or coconut milk, couple scoops of Myoplex and some almond butter. Other wise it's all pretty clean. There are carbs in veggies, but no other processed carbs. I do eat bacon like an addict, but if uncured bacon is the worst thing I'm eating on a regular basis, I think I'll be ok.
