When I adopted a plant-based eating style in 1989, most people thought I was crazy. They believed it was way too radical to never eat animal flesh products again. But I kept moving forward with my so-called radical ways.

Up to this point of my life, being “radical” by going plant-based has been my greatest achievement. It’s also yielded my greatest rewards. My personality mandated that I completely shut the door on my wayward animal flesh eating ways. Being a binge eater, I had to go “all in” with fruits, veggies and grains to get the results I wanted.

The “everything in moderation” theory never worked for me. It requires much more discipline than going all in. Cracking the door open by allowing meat products to slip in would have led to negative momentum and psychological demoralization. Moderating how you eat takes objectivity and policing yourself is clearly not objective. It puts you in situations where you constantly must rein yourself in, which takes way too much mental prowess for most people.

If you do things in moderation you must expect moderate results. A moderate amount of bacon, fries or cupcakes could produce a moderate amount of cancer. Who wants that?

But, shutting the door on those types of food, or whatever else is holding you back, could produce miraculous metabolic results. The reality is that “everything in moderation” can perpetually keep you one step away from success regarding your health and fitness.

The truth is some activities, people and environments need to be completely shut out of your life to yield sustainable results and lifetime gratification. Try starting small by shutting the door on meat products for only one week. Test yourself and let’s see where it leads.
