As a food editor, I think it's my job to be a die-hard proponent of eating everything, which means that I'm generally skeptical of diets and dietary fads and the people who jump on them.
I can't tell you how many vegan cookbooks I've tossed into the swag pile here at 7x7. Don't try to sell me on sugar substitutes, or carbless anything, or egg-white omelets or vodka made with green tea. I like whole milk, butter, bacon and whiskey. My only diet is moderation.
