What foods are you cutting out to lose weight?

Are you cutting out all junk food, ex: pop, chips, fried food, sweets?
Or do you allow yourself certain things from time to time?

    I am eating junky food less often, and less of it when I do.

    I am not cutting anything out entirely.

    I'm cutting out regular soda, chips, sweets and meat. A vegetarian diet is very tough at first, but it gets easier.

    I already need to cut out gluten due to celiac disease. I'm not willing to cut out anything else from my diet. Everything in moderation. Though I do make sure that I get my fruits/veggies/protein/water in before I'll eat any treats.

    I'm not cutting out anything completely, but I am cutting back on things such as cheese, cream sauces (I have a habit of getting those when I go out to eat), and portion size.

    I've tried cutting things out completely and I end up breaking horribly. xD

    Not cutting anything out completely. I can't imagine a life without cookies, so I have learned how to eat & live in a way that allows me to fit any food into my diet. Now THAT I can live with.

    I have cut down on cheese massively but will still have it from time to time.

    I have pretty much cut out sliced bread but i will have it on very rare occasions. I've replaced it with crackerbread and tortillas but honestly i dont like the way bread makes me feel so i try to avoid it. unless im eating something crap like a bacon sandwich or pizza where the badness wont bother me so much cause its not a good food to begin with. but in my mind i dont want to ruin lunch by having a sandwich i would rather have the filling with a salad.

    i have soya butter aswell instead now and eat alot more vegetarian options with my fella. Veggie sausages are much better for you than regular meat ones.

    Well, technically I haven't cut out anything but I eat much, much less in the way of "empty carbs" (candy, cookies, pretzels). I haven't had a Mickey D's burger or french fries for 6 months, but I suppose that I would eat it if I was on the road and that was the only option. The thing is that I'd much rather "spend" my calories on larger quantities of healthy food than small quantities of refined carbs. Also, I have not cut out drinking wine with dinner, but I do it less often, and it has to fit within my calorie goal.

    I have not cut out anything, I have just drastically shifted the base of my diet towards fresh veggies, fruits, meats and nuts, with a few whole grains thrown in.

    That being said, I haven't stopped at McD's since before Christmas.

    Haven't had any soda. Besides that, any treat I used to have I eat in much smaller portions, and usually only on workout days. The continuity does wonders.

    Fast food and Pepsi KILLED ME my entire adult life. When I lost 110 lbs, I went from drinking three cases of Pepsi in two weeks to drinking maybe four cans in two weeks. I almost completely cut out fast food and I went from 410 lbs from August 2010 to 300 lbs in September 2011.

    I've cut down on pasta and bread. I've recently restarted after success and then a year long lapse that put 45lbs back on. Its been about 2 weeks and I'm already feeling better. It makes me ask why ever did I stop! (But I think that's a pondering for another thread.) I still occasionally eat the pastas or breads, but frankly, even with upping my water consumption to try and counteract the bloating I experience with those two things, I find it not worth the consumption. I will eat pasta or bread and my hands swell and all my rings are tight the next day. I'm starting to wonder if maybe I have an intolerance or something, but everything feels tight and I feel sluggish after I eat say, a big serving of ravioli or a bready sandwich. I've started adding in veggie based smoothies which help cut back my urge to graze on 'fun foods'. I live in a house with many different people so I don't have absolute control over every scrap of food that enters the kitchen. But if I tell myself that I need to get in at least 2 fruits and 2 whole veggie servings a day I definately see a better result in my caloric numbers, with a better mental level of satiation. Plus I feel proud that I exerted control to make better decisions. I still have fun stuff occasionally, but try to keep it at a minimum because I have a tendency to just adopt an all-or-nothing attitude and go to town on sweets. Good luck on your journey!

    Once I realized the majority of my calories were coming from Coca Cola & Sweet Tea, I cut them waaaaay back.

    I've cut out ordering in pizza, pop and chips. Those are my real weaknesses. With hockey starting back up this is going to be a real challenge for me =(
