keep? a healthy diet

Is it correct to say "People should keep a healthy diet"?

I think keep can be used here. But my dictionary(Longman contemporary) says keep a diet is a common error. Is that true?

Thank you so much.

    However, if you put 'should stick to a healthy diet' on Google, you get 332,000 results!

    I should add that Google does funny things, and my results might not be comparable to Copyright's (post 3). If you go to the last page, Google shows 363 results:

    The comparable number is 363.
