    I think it has a lot to do with grocery trips being smaller in bulk and farther between, and then the rationing aspect of it. I really think that's it.

    I have a friend who is an ex-bouncer and all-around big dude who took to carrying a small bowl around with him at meals, even on business. Whatever fit in the bowl, that would be all he'd have for his meal. And it was a pretty small bowl. He went from looking like a third-string center to an edge rusher, just by that self-policing on portion control.

    One doctor made it pretty simple. Have a hamburger, but don't have fries. Have a sandwich, but don't have chips. Carbs and sugar are the enemy. You can nearly eliminate sugar, but carbs are harder to avoid. Just cut down on them. My wife lost 80 pounds doing Keto.

    Eliminate carbs. Limit salt and sugar.

    It’s all you really need to know. You can pretty much eat as much as you want if you follow those rules and exercise even a little bit.

    Carbs are sugar. The distinction is in added or processed sugar. Nobody should eat a sugar free diet. You couldn't eat a vegetable. The problem is processed snacks and bread are calorie dense while fruits and vegetables are mostly water and fiber.
