My problem with moderation is, once I have say, a Reese's miniature because Easter is a special occasion...that just sets me up for another one, and another. And then I'm eating lots of things that are high fat, or processed, etc. Some things just need to be "I don't eat that" like dairy. I don't consume dairy. Period. (it helps that I don't feel well after dairy ha!) but I also don't eat meat. I don't have meat in moderation, and I don't miss it. It simply isn't something that I eat anymore.
Maybe my chocolate could be said to be "in moderation" as I have two squares (about 60 calories) of extra dark organic 85% chocolate every work day. To treat myself for staying in the ole cubicle, eh? Or my once a week popcorn with butter. ??? maybe that's moderation. But some things simply CAN'T be on my "okay in moderation" list. They'll just trigger me. Right?
