Yes, the one that they create for themselves based on sound nutrition and dietary needs... but only that one... and only for themselves.
I always suggest my clients eat a well balanced diet of carbs, protein, and fat. I suggest they eat 5-6 small meals a day, aprox every 3 hours.
No, because everyone is different. It makes no sense to tell someone one diet is better than another because everyone is stimulated by different tastes. It is better to educate your client on food. This goes way beyond traditional nutritional science (which i believe is going backwards) but understanding the complexities of food labels, ingredients, macro and micronutrients. It is a very long detailed process but it is what is necessary!

No, I suggest a lifestyle change to a 'diet' in moderation and clean eating. Diets are meant to lose weight drastically and people usually crash after a few months.
No, the word diet makes a person think they have to deprive themselves of something. I like for my clients to eat clean daily.
No, because one way of eating is not necessarily better than another. Instead, if asked, I will steer them toward basic nutrition guidelines and resources such as a registered dietician and/or Canada's Food Guide (which could use some updating).
As far as telling my clients that a SPECIFIC diet is better than others - absolutely not! My general advice is eating a balanced diet (eating a variety of foods from each general food group). If a client wants or needs SPECIFIC diet advice I direct them to a registered nutrition professional.
Not really diets. I try to stress less of eating a "diet" and more aiming to eat healthy.
I don't promote one diet over another. I provide them with some general information about eating habits and after that I'll suggest to them to seek the advice of a dietitian for a more comprehensive meal plan that will work best for them.
