Who else loves this quote? It is one of my all time favourites.
I’m a big fan of moderation and balance. It’s a valuable tool with a lot of credit when it comes to food.
But I’m also aware enough to know that “everything in moderation” can be perpetuated in diet culture as simply just another ‘food rule’. Where instead of being ‘helpful’ (which is the intention of the original quote), it becomes a space for guilt, fear, rigidity, deprivation and negativity when it comes to food. This is the case for so many.
So as always, I urge you to be curious about the way you use it, and the motives and emotions behind it while you’re using it. And remember….
Everything in moderation. INCLUDING MODERATION!
