Everything In Moderation Is Terrible Advice !


Libby at 'Ditch The Carbs' site writes:
"The phrase “everything in moderation” is meaningless!
Why is it repeated so often and what does it actually mean? Most people use this valueless phrase to justify eating junk food on a regular basis.
Did you know that you are actually healthier by eating a small range of healthy foods, than everything in moderation?

Do we need a varied diet? – YES but do we need to eat everything in moderation – NO.

This is a subtle, yet incredibly important point to distinguish.

Eating a varied diet can be done correctly or incorrectly. Eating a variety of whole unprocessed foods is perfect, eating a variety of processed food, unhealthy oils, processed carbs and nutrient void food, is simply unhealthy."

Well, I wonder what you think?

We bring a variety of articles, studies etc. plus recent news/views and recipe ideas to this blog, we hope something for everyone to read and enjoy. Please note, not all may be suitable for you. If you may have any food allergies, or underlying health issues these must always be taken into account. If you are a diabetic and not sure how certain foods may affect your blood sugars, test is best, i.e. use your meter.

All the best Jan

There are quite a lot of silly phrases in common usage.
I hadn't thought about it before, but that is another one.

Hi Jan,

I so agree and better to eat healthy food and leave the bad and processed food out of ones diet.
Have a great weekend

That saying works so well for me - as I don't/we don't have junk food.

I eat low carb cause I think it´s the better choice - thankfully I´m not diabetic.
So from time to time I do eat "junk food" - but I prefer quality. You can get Burgers from good meat, too and a pizza from a real Italianisn´t junk, either.
Food is life, it should also be fun.

We are facing our own appetite and looking for advice to get rid of it. Some advice is arbitrary and improper. Flood of information....

I hadn't thought of it that way.

Very well said, I do feel that once you start eating things that aren't good for you, that it can get addictive and hard to have just a little bit
