“In order to preserve health, temperance in all things is necessary – temperance in labour, temperance in eating and drinking.” How to live pg 57.
“True temperance teaches us to dispense entirely with everything hurtful, and to use judiciously that which is healthful.” The Faith I Live By, pg. 231
Avoid anything that is harmful to your body. This includes liquor, drugs, tobacco, overeating, eating between meals, sugar-laden foods, strong condiments and spices, all caffeinated foods (chocolates and some sodas contain caffeine, as do coffee and tea), large combinations of foods, grease and fat, excess salt, and animal foods. “Indulgence in eating too frequently, and in too large quantities, overtaxes the digestive organs, and produces a feverish state of the system. The blood becomes impure, and then diseases of various kinds occur.”—Review and Herald, September 5, 1899
