In the first sermon, Hitchcock explains four different ways that one can be intemperate in their eating habits. These include consuming more food than necessary for sustenance, eating food that upsets one's mind or body, eating more than one course per meal, and eating at particular times or in a particular manner. He concludes that intemperance in eating is incredibly widespread and urges his listeners to strive towards temperance. In the second sermon, Hitchcock lists twelve arguments often given for being intemperate in one's eating and then refutes each one, explaining why it is incorrect.
