Diet, refers to food and drink regularly consumed for nourishing the body. Nutritionists generally recommend eating a wide variety of foods. However, some groups of people survive on a very limited diet. Let us take for example the traditional Eskimo diet. This diet depended mainly on meats, but Eskimos ate nearly the entire animal; organ meats are rich in vitamins and minerals. Another example is Vegetarians. They exclude meat (and sometimes by extension dairy products) from their diet, often times for philosophical reasons. Others exclude only red meat, but eat poultry and dairy products. To maintain a healthy diet, vegetarians need to eat a wide variety of plants whose nutrients complement each other, providing a balance of amino acids and vitamins.

Humans may alter their usual eating habits for many reasons, including weight loss, disease prevention or treatment, removing toxins from the body, or to achieve a general improvement in physical and mental health. Others adopt special diets for religious reasons. In the case of some vegetarians and vegans, dietary changes are made out of ethical concerns for the rights of animals.
