A moderate amount of trans-fats, HFCS, artificial coloring and flavoring? Not so sure about that one. There are too many things that are considered food nowadays that are really not.
Grains are genetically changed to where they cause gluten-intolerance and addiction for many people, sugar is not in a form that is found in nature and even fruit and veggies are often bred for extremely high sugar levels, just look at seed catalog advertisements.
Sugar and wheat in particular are so addictive that eating them in moderation is like smoking cigarettes in moderation or saying one smokes only filter cigarettes. Whole wheat or "moderate" amounts of sugar may be slighly less bad than large amounts of these things, but that does not make them healthy for anyone.
Animal products are usually from grain-fed animals which means that the omega-6 to omega3-fatty acid balance is far out of whack, more like 20-1 rather than 1-1 which is very bad for the heart.
So I would say if you eat truly natural, organic foods that were naturally bred, grown and raised then moderation may be good if you also don't have any allergies, food sensitivities, insulin-resistance (in which case carbs need to be very low). Otherwise stay with those foods that your body does well on. emoticon

You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.

BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN OTHERS.
