In brief: Diet

A diet is just a plan for eating, it doesn't have to be a weight loss diet.
The best documented diet is probably the mediterranean diet.

In brief: No.

People go on diets for different reasons.
Most want to lose weight. Some feel that they may get more energy or feel better by being on a special diet. If your normal diet is full of saturated fats, sugary items and processed foods (and you aren't overweight), then i would say a different (and healthier) diet would be appropriate and even encouraged!
