inSANE

Myth: All Foods are Fine in Moderation & “Everything in moderation, including moderation.” ― Oscar Wilde

Listen



Note 1



Most diets suggest that you can eat whatever as long as you don’t eat too many calories. However, where calories come from and what comes along with them can disrupt your biology for generations.

Note 2



The message of moderation enables processed food companies to market anything is “healthy” while we get sicker and fatter.

Note 3



Cigarettes have no calories in them. Does that make them a healthy indulgence?

Step 3 of 6



SANE

Moderate Smoking May Not Cause Cancer. That Doesn’t Make It Healthy & Moderation Means “This Is inSANE” But We Don’t Want to Say That

Listen



Note 1



There is no need for moderation when you enjoy SANE sources of sweet, salty, and savory tastes.

Note 2



Moderation is just another word for deprivation. While going SANE you never need to be deprived of anything. You can eat more just smarter.

Note 3



Moderation is one of the most effective marketing tools manufacturers of processed inSANE substances have at this disposal.

Step 4 of 6



Quiz

Remember these? Give them one more try now that you’ve spent a few minutes going SANE.

Q1

Calorie counts are the most important consideration in your food choices, so you can eat anything you’d like and burn fat and boost health long term as long as you are careful not to eat too many calories.



True

Try again.

False

Correct! The quantity of calories in something is only one of many factors determining its impact on you. Remember, aspirin contains no calories and can be helpful. However, that doesn’t mean eating a “low-calorie” bowl of aspirin for breakfast is a good idea.

Q2

The “low-calorie” options at chain restaurants are your best bets to burn fat and boost health.



True

Try again.

False

Correct! But be careful. The point here is not to seek out high-calorie options. Just understand that you are after SANE options and that these may be low-, medium-, or high-calorie. The key is more SANEity, not fewer calories.

Q3

Eating any amount of inSANE processed products causes obesity and diabetes.



True

Try again.

False

Correct! Will a single soda or candy bar every once in a while kill us? Of course not. But neither will a single cigarette every once in a while. The question is what we should be recommending.

Step 5 of 6



Support

The number of people keeping you accountable is your #1 predictor of long-term success.

Sharing your SANEity enables you to enjoy instant accountability and support from your social networks. The science is 100% clear: The more you share your SANEity, the more success you will enjoy.
