Once the dieta is put into the framework of a relationship building experience, it is easier to understand that the focus is not on the sacrifices, but on the rewards. If someone in a relationship is just focused on what he/she has to give up for that relationship, then it is most likely not a healthy relationship. In reality, the sacrifices are accepted without hesitation. We do whatever we can for our true friends and loved ones, and will often give our own lives for the ones we love the deepest. We are willing to make such profound sacrifices because of the profound emotional satisfaction we receive from those relationships. In short, we care so much, that we are more than willing to give up anything that might hinder that relationship. It is not really what defines the relationship, but rather what expresses the level of care put into that relationship. Plant dietas can be considered in the same way.
An interesting feature of the dieta is that the terms are negotiable, meaning that while a plant spirit may initially want a dieta to be of a certain length, like one year, for example, the curandero can counter with an offer of a shorter duration, until the actual terms are agreed upon. The other terms of the dieta, like how strict the dieta will be, can also be negotiated, although it is most likely done much less, as they are well established within the tradition. A common example of the specifics of a dieta would be to refrain from all sexual stimulation and alcohol, and to eat just fish and green plantains for the entirety of the dieta. Usually, only a few types of small toothless fish are eaten, perhaps due to their low fat content.
