I read this article the other day and there are some helpful tips. Nevertheless, I have to agree with the comments on this article because some substitutions don't make sense and wouldn't work for me. What I notice when I prepare something is that I always try to find healthier (low fat,low sugar) options that are as close to the original as possible, but If i can't think of anything then I just have to eat smaller portions. I just can't imagine being satisfied with something that is so far off (like apple sauce and chocolate pudding- I am glad that someone else mentioned that). One of my magic foods in the last couple months has been quark. It is so versatile and I use it as a substitute for sour cream, cream cheese, yoghurt and even sometimes as a substitute for pudding.
