Sensibly Healthy: Moderation

Pin It Now!

So, if there is one thing I have learned about healthy eating, it is that I will only be successful if I approach it with moderation. I know that I am setting myself up for failure if I determine not to eat ANY sugar, or to ONLY eat a certain type of food, or to NOT eat any carbs. I know lots of people have been successful in doing these things. And I am sure it is possible. But is it possible, for most of us, for a lifetime?

You see, my desire to lose weight goes much further than simply losing a set amount of pounds.  I actually need to find a lifestyle that will be conducive to keeping it off for the rest of my life. 

How will I do this? By using moderation. By finding a way of eating that is glorifying to my heavenly father.

Sugar isn't evil. Carbohydrates are not evil. Fruits and vegetables aren't especially blessed by God.

Now, as I say this, I do want to express here that I do believe that foods that are highly processed or use unnatural, chemically based products are harmful to our bodies. I am working to rid my diet of as much of these as possible.

But any food in its natural state is not a bad food. It is simply about moderation.

Now...if I can only be sure to live this and not only write about it! ;)
