"Moderation" doesn't mean anything. One man's moderation is another man's excess is another man's depravation. If you ask me in what amount of moderation should you enjoy soybean oil, I will say zero. You should enjoy zero grams of soybean oil in your diet in moderation. If you ask me what moderation on carbohydrate is, my view of moderation will be much higher than most people's on this thread. Then again, I enjoy Thousand Carbohydrate Friday.
Find out what your maintenance calories are. If you eat that much food, that's as good a definition of "moderation" as you can get IMO.
To counter lardomuncher's view on "moderation", if you told me you were eating nuts in any quantity every day, I'd consider that excess. My view of moderation on nuts may be 1-2 servings a week.

Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.
