In brief: Avoid wheat

Check out dr. Davis and his information about modern wheat.
It makes us it on an average 400 cal more per day and is toxic to our gut. It also increases mental dysfunction. Be aware that wheat is in everything, from canned soup to salad dressing so it is not easy to eliminate. Eat "single" foods such as avocado, nuts, organic meats and legumes. Let me know how it works out.
