A new way to approach eating is subtraction by addition. Studies have shown that Americans, in general, tend to eat a similar volume of food day in and day out, month after month. The main problem is the caloric density of the food that we consume. The same volume of food may be 1,700 calories or it may be 3,500 calories! (1oz of apple = 15 cals, 1oz of chips = 150 cals)
Instead of focusing on what not to eat, add in some foods that are good for you (i.e. fruits and vegetables) therefore filling volume and crowding out the foods that you are always told not to consume.
