For me it helps to weigh/measure everything before it went on my plate, because if I pile on half a plate of mashed potatoes, I'm gonna eat half a plate of mashed potatoes! (I still admittedly have trouble at restaurants where they serve the equivalent of 3 meals on a single plate!)
It also helps to only buy as much as you need, or make plans for the leftovers before you even start cooking. It was hard at first but it's practically second nature now.
Do something everyday that your future self will thank you for.
