I find it really helpful even when I choose to go "off plan" and eat something different. It helps to know how many calories or carbs or whatever I have to :play with".

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

I do this periodically, but should do it more frequently.

Definitely a good tip. I pre-plan all of my meals and knowing what I'm going to have, rather than scouring the kitchen, is a much easier way to stay on target.

I use my nutrition tracker everyday and realized that I do not use all the calories that I am suppose to so now I make sure that I am eating healthier food through out the day.

Your idea is a GREAT one. For a lot of us, PLANNING and TRACKING are two of the most important tools we have - by combining them and planning for tomorrow's eating and tracking it in advance (you can always make adjustments if you need to) lets you know in advance whether you can have the special treat or not. It lets you know that you are under YOUR control. It is one of the ideal ways to help stay on track. Good for you.

I've found a great way to keep to my diet plan by entering the meals I plan for tomorrow instead of what i had today! By doing this I can adjust foods to keep within my calorie allowance and pre-plan my meals so that I'm not tempted to get something unhealthy in a rush. I've downloaded the app for my BB and can see at a glance what my foods are for the day - not been hungry and often surprise myself with spare calories for a little treat! Do it in your quiet time in the evening and its no chore! emoticon
