Eating ‘everything in moderation’ is not best advice says Nutrition Scientist


We’ve all heard the axiom that everything is OK in moderation.

But nutrition science doesn’t really agree with this saying. A cookie here, a salad there — turns out that’s not quite the same as actually being healthy.

Dr. David Ludwig, a Harvard Medical School nutrition and obesity expert, talked to Tech Insider about what scientifically sound dieting looks like. His book, “Always Hungry?” outlines an evidence-based eating plan that focuses on what you eat — not just how much.

Ludwig called the moderation mantra “useless.”

He said:

There [are] some things you [should] eat a lot of, and I would put things like olive oil, avocado, nuts in that category. There are other things you [should] really minimize, especially if you’re dealing with pre-diabetes or some other metabolic problem. You don’t want to go moderate with sugar — whatever that means. You want to get rid of as much of it as you can.
