Hi, and welcome to The Tortoise Table.

It's a good question that you ask, and we do have a section on the website that explains the 'traffic light' system and what the terms 'feed moderately', etc. mean. Here's a link to the How To Use the Database section, and if you scroll down to the section called 'The Traffic Light System of Colour Coding for Safety' there is a an explanation of what the lights mean and what the terms 'feed freely', 'feed sparingly' and 'feed moderately' mean. https://www.thetortoisetable.org.uk/pla ... KoN9KHTXwo
If you can't find it, let me know and I'll cut and paste the section here, and if you still have any questions after reading it, also let us know and we'll try and explain further.

And do feel free to post photos of your tortoise (lol, we never get tired of seeing photos of tortoises!), or ask any questions you might have about care or diet.
