Sweet potato casserole is actually good (as a dessert)

Also not worth the calories for me is cheese on sandwiches and burgers.
I like cheese in certain applications, but a slice on a sandwich/burger does nothing for me. Before counting calories, if I was served a sandwich with cheese, I'd just eat it. Now, I pick it off and save the calories for a cookie or something.

Avoid chick fila sauce - 140 cals
Avoid most salad dressing (keep to 30 cals or less per 2 tablespoons) Olive Garden lite, Kraft balsamic lite ok
Avoid most Cheese products, about 100 cals an ounce
I do endorse full fat cottage cheese for breakfast. 2oz with a couple of chopped almonds on top. It keeps me satisfied with eating very little (first thing).
Sugar drinks are mostly wasted cals including juice, licorice is ridiculously high, ribs are ridiculously high, you have to be really careful with pasta portion, a plate of spaghetti could be your entire cals for the day.
Chocolate dark is ok...but small portion. Very small.
Avoid syrups, sugar.
Avoid all cooking oils, instead steam/saute food with broth and water. Use seasonings for flavor. Also I use a lot of lemon and lime for flavor.
Burger is ok but don’t eat the top bun, remember each fry is 10 cals. Never eat more than 10-20.
Just don’t eat pizza....unless it is a very very special occasion. They taste so good but each slice is 250-450 depending on crust, cheese and greasy toppings.
Bagels are too dense and not worth it.
