Please inform me of the difference between feeding and diet.

If you tell me the source to know the difference, I am very happy.

Thank you.

giving of food
Explanation:
Given your subject matter, as posted -- feeding is the giving or providing of food, and diet is the composition of the food, meaning proteins, carbohydrates, calories, minerals, vitamins, etc.

Some of the articles I looked at that contain the words chronobiology, feeding and diet refer to high fat feeding, but the more normal way to say that would be high fat diet.

Some refer to animal feeding meaning feeding themselves, but that is fine. The feeding can be the giving or the talking of food.

I hope that helps some.

THE FOLLOWING EXAMPLE of high fat feeding, which may be similar to what you have come across, uses diet as a plan of feeding (high fat diet) but also uses high fate to refer to a particlular administration of that diet (combined with another variable, in this case the time of the feeding). So the adjective here, high fat, helps make the sentence more clear. The reader know which group of rats you are talking about by using the adjective (high fat) without having to indicate which group with a longer phrase.

"RESULTS: Shifting the light-dark cycle on a weekly basis was efficient to induce circadian desynchronization, as evidenced by strong disturbances in the daily expression of locomotor activity. Shifted rats fed with a nocturnal low-fat diet had lower plasma insulin and similar blood glucose compared to rats fed with the same diet under a fixed light-dark cycle. Nocturnal high-fat feeding led to an abdominal fat overload associated with increased plasma leptin and basal glucose. These metabolic changes were not significantly modified by circadian desynchronization."
