Probably the best step to take if you don't do this already is- Add at least 1 serving of fruit and vegetables to each meal, and try to use fruits and vegetables for snacks. It can be hard, so start with what you like. For me, I LOVE grapefruit, so I eat that almost every day. 1 whole grapefruit is 1 serving, and only has about 50 calories.
Weight and measuring food is a good way to get a handle on your calorie intake. When I started, a serving of pasta was not what I thought it was!
SP has a great took in the meal plans- You can turn it on or off, but it can be a nice, relatively painless, transition into eating healthy. I used ti for a while and just subbed out things I did not like. For example, I hate eggs, so if it called for eggs, I'd use something else- egg beaters, cottage cheese, or otherwise, depending on the application.
Check out the diet and nutrition forum as well, that is a great place to ask for suggestions on diet, and it a bit more active than the recipes forum.
Welcome to SP, and good luck!
