DIET, a word that is the staple to our language these days originated in the early 19th century. Diet simply means the sum of food consumed by a person or other organism. This often refers to the use of a specific nutrition for health or weight-management reasons (both are often associated).
It started back in the era of the Industrial Revolution. The Industrial Revolution brought an increase in wealth, in the production of goods and the standard of living. This led to the discovery and evolution of new resources that were artificially made and this resulted in today’s essential commodities like sugar, alcohol, salt, cereal grains, domesticated meats and dairy products. Industrial Revolution introduced new methods of food processing including the addition of cereals, refined sugar and refined vegetable oils.
