  5. "Her diet only allows her to …

"Her diet only allows her to drink juice."

Translation:Chế độ ăn kiêng của cô ấy chỉ cho phép cô ấy uống nước ép.

Hint suggests "chế độ ăn uống" and "chế độ ăn kiêng" for "diet" but only accepts the latter. What's the difference?


In English, the word "diet" have two meaning:

  • A controlled regimen of food and drink, as to gain or lose weight or otherwise influence health. ("chế độ ăn kiêng")
  • The food and beverage a person or animal consumes habitually. ("chế độ ăn uống")

In this sentence, clearly it is used with the first meaning, as she can only drink juice.
