When you talk about the best ways to lose weight with certain people, you are bound to run into somebody who spouts off the meaningless and mindless “just eat in moderation” argument.

Never in the history of mankind has there ever been a more idiotic statement to tell someone who desires weight loss than to “eat in moderation.”

bq. When do you know when you’ve gotten enough of something? How much sugar is needed for my diet to be “in moderation?” How about white flour, processed foods, and starchy veggies? What does a serving of arsenic look like “in moderation?” Does anyone else see the nonsense of just eating everything “in moderation?” If people knew how to moderate their intake of food, then why would they need to go on a diet? People need direction about how to eat because most of us haven’t a clue about what is healthy and what is not.
