What moderation looks like
What moderation does
Moderation works. Why does it work? It gives us the best of everything we want. It doesn't make us choose between carbs or protein or sweets or vegetables. It doesn't make us fear carbs or sugar or fat. It gives us the freedom to choose foods we want and not ones that we don't. It gives us the freedom to choose foods we want, when we want them, instead of depriving ourselves and giving in worse later.
What moderation isn't
As you can see above, moderation doesn't mean only eating "junk" food, all day, every day. It means you can eat how you want, what works for your schedule, body, and goals.
