There's a fundamental law of human nutrition that goes like this: 

If a food is in your possession or located in your residence, you will eventually eat it.

(Whether you plan to or not, whether you want to or not, you'll eventually eat it! Trust us!) 
Therefore, according to this important law of human nutrition, if you wish to be healthy and lean, you must remove all foods that aren't part of your healthy eating program and replace them with a variety of better, healthier choices. 

How do you know which foods have got to go and which foods stay?
