If you were going to make yourself a list of things NOT to eat as part of a healthier diet, what would be on that list?
I don't mean to lose weight, I mean just to be healthier in general.

:hungry:

For me Soda. I seem to think that a glass of Soda or Tea should always be in my hand.

To be healthier, I am trying to add more whole grains and less red meat myself. So far I have failed at that.

I wish you luck!

Eat proper portion sizes, not what you are served at home or while dining out and KNOW what you're eating - real food vs chemicals, preservatives etc. Everything in moderation young man ;)

Anything that was not born or grow that way.
If it wasn't born or grown, don't eat it. If it has ingredients you can't pronounce, don't eat it.

Read Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbra Kingsolver
and Omnivores Dilemma, In Defense of Food and Food Rules by Michael Pollan

These books really delve into what we eat and why we should think more about what we put in our bodies. Most of what American's think of as food is "food like substance"

If I cut out sugary, greasy junk like candy, cookies, potato chips and empty carbs like bagels I'd probably lose some weight!

Like someone else said: it's best to cut out anything not natural. I know the theory I just haven't gotten it into practice.

or to be more general:

Anything overloaded with fat, cholesterol, sodium, sugar and trans fats. :)

Anything in excess. Moderation allows you to enjoy just about anything.

I thought these were the four food groups?
:laugh::laugh::laugh:

No, the four food groups are...
1) Meat
2) Potatoes
3) Gravy
4) Dessert

Seriously, I don't forbid myself any particular food. It just makes me want it more if I do. I just try to eat as healthfully as I can.

I flatly refuse to give up chocolate even though it makes my clothes shrink. :)
