These are foods that I have cut out from my every day eating:

White Carbs: pasta, bread, cereal, tortillas, etc.
Substitutes: Beans, granola, trail mix, nuts

Sugar- Ummmm do you need examples??
Substitutes: Honey, dark chocolate

Fatty Dairy and Animal Proteins: Cheese, bacon, sausage
Substitutes: Salmon, Chicken, Greek yogurt, protein shakes(w/ unsweetened almond milk)
