The definitions for "regime" are both valid from my point.

"The totalitarian regime has fallen" uses the first definition.
"This is a new diet regime I am following" uses the second definition.

Edit: It seems that "regime" when used in the medical sense is interchangeable with "regimen," according to Merriam-Webster.
