If you enjoy your daily glass of wine I wouldn't worry about the contradictory findings. On the other hand, if anyone ever suggested you start drinking alcohol for your health I'd say that advice isn't yet established.

Let go of your negative associations with eating, with certain foods, with weight and expectations. Stop depriving yourself. Stop trying to define moderation. Stop placing blame and instead choose to be mindful.

A Moderate's Manifesto

Robert Strong | Posted 07.28.2014 | Politics
Robert Strong

I know that I am a moderate because I can't stand to watch Fox News or MSNBC for more than a few minutes at a time. I can say "bipartisan" without gagging. I try not to let consistency get in the way of a good idea.

It's the end of the common sense world as we know it and I feel... incredibly guilty. Incredibly caught up in the very nonsense I rail against.

Forget the Nutritional Fire and Brimstone on Super Bowl Sunday

Judith J. Wurtman, PhD

But why not enjoy all aspects of this day, including the frivolous eating? Despite the constant preaching about the evils of eating foods that really taste good and satisfy some deep hidden craving, I suspect that people will ignore the sermons and eat what they want.

There Is No Denying Life

The only way we learn is by making mistakes -- there is no shame in that. The only way we grow is by accepting them -- there is only insight in that. The only way we evolve is by letting them go -- there is only beauty in the enlightenment that follows.

Our public health situation is so fragile that bland toothless nutrition messaging will not do the trick. The American public deserves helpful and accurate information that can help guide them to health.

I'm a Controlled Alcoholic

Steve Mason | Posted 01.23.2014 | Healthy Living
Steve Mason

The danger is not so much in what people do as in how they do it. Drug abuse is life abuse... but so are all forms of abuse. People abuse religion when they use it to exterminate their neighbors. They abuse credit when they use it to buy a $300 dinner. Should we outlaw credit? Dinner? How about plastic?

What makes for a happy, healthy life? I sought pearls of wisdom from my 99-year-old Bubbe. She is healthy by most standards, though I wouldn't go so far as to say she is 'happy' -- that is a tough word when you are 99. My Bubbe is best characterized as 'satisfied.'

Compassionate vs. Casino Capitalism: Moderation or the Wild West

It shouldn't be a surprise to anyone that "casino capitalism" is one of the very worst and lowest expressions of the human spirit. In human civilization, we have achieved some of the most extraordinary acts of love, art and heroism for millennia.

Four years ago, when I decided that I was going to finally lose weight and this time it would be for good, I knew that the only way I was going to do it was to ditch the diet mentality and see it as a lifestyle. This meant finding a balance.

Karen Stabiner | Posted 06.18.2013 | Taste
Karen Stabiner

Anyone who's ever tried to lose even a little weight, or to break any bad habit, for that matter, knows how it goes: You take an absolute stance, you spend way too much time thinking about the thing that has become a taboo, and then, eventually, you cave.

Are We Better Off Cutting Out Decadent Foods or Enjoying Them in Moderation While Dieting?

Gregg McBride | Posted 05.21.2013 | Healthy Living
Gregg McBride

Fresh-baked bread with cream cheese is not something I eat daily. Sometimes not even weekly. But it is something I enjoy in moderation. Even if I'm being strict with my eating plan (something that, for the record, I'm always paying close attention to, even when "treating" myself).

Moderation Is for Hippies

Mark Morford | Posted 03.11.2013 | Comedy
Mark Morford

It's true, isn't it? Moderation is a joke. Moderation is un-American. Moderation in any healthy, compassionate sense in this year of our extremely hot and imminently riotous 2013 is nothing short of a goddamn modern miracle.

I remember a time before the BlackBerry. And while I appreciate its value for emergencies, mapping and the like, I am not fond of its other effects. Today, we are flooded with distraction and noise, and the skill is not drowning in it all.

Does a taste of champagne at a family wedding consign your son to a life of AA meetings? Will the mere mention of sex at home ensure your daughter of a future reality show appearance as a teen mom?

The response to Paula Deen's revelation that she has Type 2 diabetes highlights the false "either-or" dilemma that plagues our culture's approach to eating (and most other things): good or bad, right or wrong, all or nothing.
