True temperance teaches us to dispense entirely with everything harmful and to use judiciously that which is healthful. (CH p. 121)

Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31

When thou sittest to eat with a ruler, consider diligently what is before thee: And put a knife to thy throat, if thou be a man given to appetite. Proverbs 23:1-2

It is possible to eat immoderately even with wholesome food.

Jogging can cause an enlarged heart; but walking is the best exercise for the diseased.

It is an easy matter to lose health but it is difficult to regain it. We ca nnot afford to dwarf or cripple a single function of the mind or body by overwork or abuse of any part of the living machinery. My Life Today p. 142
