In public speaking, a “diet” (/dɪd/ ), is a formal assembly where the agenda is presented, the decisions are made, and all votes are taken. The word is most commonly used historically to describe deliberative assemblies including the German Imperial Diet and a general description of contemporary legislative bodies in various countries and regions including… the British House of Commons and the Australian Senate. The word can also be used for political forums, and the United States Congress.
In this article we shall look at what the word “diet” actually means, why you should use it in your own speeches or discussions, and how it applies to the way you conduct business. The reason why you should use the word “diet” is that it is more accurate than “substitute” and it is not commonly used in the public’s language.
Let us start with the basics of a public speech or debate: in a debate, the speaker attempts to persuade the audience that his views are the best. By being able to show the audience that they are mistaken, the speaker shows that he has a better understanding and awareness of their problems than the audience does.
If we compare the arguments of two people – the one with whom we have established an initial discussion and the one who have come at our argument from the outside – and we take a look at what is happening to the audience, we will see that when we use “diet” for both situations the debate becomes more accurate. The audience will be shown which side of the argument was more accurate; and if we then compare that person’s opinion with their facts, we will be able to find what would be the most reasonable view – the one that they are inclined to accept.
In public speaking, the most important thing is being able to demonstrate to the audience that your point of view is correct. When you use “diet” in a public debate, you have the opportunity to convince the audience that what you say is correct, and that the other person is wrong. It is not always possible to get them to believe what you say because, after all, they were listening to you, which means that they have been led to think things because of which they are not necessarily true.
It is therefore important to ensure that you use this word, “diet”, even when delivering public speeches. The reason why is because “diet” allows you to make the argument more accurate and less likely to be dismissed as something that you have simply “switched sides of an argument”. The same thing happens in political discussions: the person who is on the opposite side of a certain view has been led to believe that they are on the right side by a biased media, biased public officials, or even by themselves. They are therefore led to believe that they are right; but they are actually wrong, because their own arguments have not convinced the public. You may think that you have an important argument when, in fact, it is not, and so you need to give it away for nothing.
