There is a direct correlation to moderation and food guilt.
- mod·er·a·tion: the avoidance of excess or extremes, especially in one’s behavior
- guilt: the fact of having committed a specified or implied offense or crime, here, eating too much “bad” food
Let’s change the conversation from “good food” and “bad food” to eating with mindfulness and moderation…
…not too much of anything, not over indulging just because its a certain holiday, not binge eating bc its on the table.
Let’s not focus on what we CAN’T have but on what we CAN CHOOSE…
…Healthy, clean, fresh vegetables, fruits, lean meats, & whole grains.
This concept is called “crowding out.” Eating so much healthy goodness that you are full, nourished, and no longer craving or addicted to the crap.

I don’t want anyone to feel food guilt. If you want a cookie, have a cookie – but do so mindfully, savoring each bite.
Practicing moderation is the antidote to food guilt.
