In my Seattle weight loss and Bainbridge Island weight loss offices of Slender For Life™ I frequently talk about the problem of moderation and often quote Jeff Novick and Dr. John McDougall. In my book, Becoming Slender For Life, I write that “Moderation may work for moderate people, but not for the rest of us compulsive, passionate, obsessive people. My recommendations for healthy eating are radical—and some would call them extreme. But look at it this way. Radical changes produce radical results. Small changes produce small results.”
I was excited to see this Facebook post from Jeff Novick:
Why and How “Moderation” Is Killing Americans
The concept of Moderation is killing Americans. On average, Americans are taking in less than 40% of the minimum recommended amounts of Whole Grains, Vegetables, Fruits and Fiber. Yet, at the same time, they are taking in over 230% of the amount of Sat Fat, Added Sugars, Fats, Refined Grains and Sodium.
So, who can moderate?
Moderation would do absolutely nothing to improve these numbers.
What we do need is a dramatic increase in the amount of fruits, vegetables and whole grains while at the same time a dramatic decrease in the amount of Sat Fat, added sugars, fats, refined grains and sodium.
Moderation is only an excuse and rationalization which is being fueled by the clever marketing and advertising of the food industry to keep us doing the things we know we shouldn’t be doing and to keep us consuming their products, which in the end, is actually a major contributor to our ill health and early death..

In Becoming Slender For Life and its hypnosis CD set, I provide you tools to make healthy radical changes in your diet that allow you to lose weight and keep it off. After all, the goal is to be Slender For Life™. Most of us know that diets don’t work. We tried the moderation approach only to fail and put weight back on. It was John McDougall, M.D., that brought to my attention what I knew in my gut – we can’t moderately eat the high fat and high sugar foods that marketers and lobbyists are promoting on our airwaves. As Jeff Novick tells us, moderation is killing us.
Be sure to read Jeff Novick’s FAST FOOD and discover that healthy eating can be quick, easy and affordable. Fast Food has become one of my favorite DVDs.
