Why does moderation work better than dieting when it comes to healthy eating and physical activity?
Many diets require people to deprive their bodies of specific things, but this doesn't work over the long term, since they end up craving the things of which they are deprived.
Recognizing this, AND states that the total diet or overall pattern of food eaten is the most important focus of a healthful eating style. All foods can fit within a healthful eating pattern if consumed in moderation with appropriate portion size and combined with regular physical activity.
Balance is achieved through the energy coming into your body and the energy you expend. Balancing not only what you eat through a variety of foods, but also balancing moderate activity, fulfills your body's nutritional needs, while also providing emotional pleasure that comes from enjoying the foods you love.
