I was wondering what exactly you mean by “Moderation at own expense”? Is it for example when someone says “oh I don’t believe in overly restrictive diets, one should be able to eat anything in moderation” while they’re complaining of a bunch of health issues (ie their results are not working for them)? In that case their idea of moderation really isn’t serving them, ie serving a higher purpose of achieving optimal health. They’re using it as an excuse to take their commitment to the next level (unknowingly). Did I understand that right?
