(CNN) -- It turns out Americans have been cutting calories, but are still far from eating healthy.

A recent study found that in 2010, the average adult ate nearly 100 fewer calories a day than seven years before, in 2003.

Decreases in the consumption of sugary drinks and trans fats have played a large part in the calorie decline.

Despite the decrease in calories, there has not been a real increase in healthy eating.

Americans are still eating too much fast food and foods with added sugar -- and not enough fruits and vegetables.
