Well today was better. Dinner last night was very light so I after I tracked it I realized that a full portion would not be too much. I think that using the tracking system I can determine how much of the dinner to bring or just bring something else. Thanks for all the advice from everyone.

I was thinking that taking 1/2 portion of leftovers as well. Take along a salad or perhaps chopped veggies to dip in FF salad dressing. If you have a microwave available, put some cauliflower, broccoli, mushrooms and carrots with a little water & black pepper - cover with saran wrap and steam for a minute or two.

Yea I think that is the best solution. If my wife packs my lunch she usually puts less, but when I do it I normally put a normal size portion. I was thinking of just not bringing in the leftovers and eating them for dinner the next day and pack a small lunch instead. Thanks for the suggestion.

What about eating lighter dinners, or only taking half of the meal for lunch one day, and the other half the next?

Usually I take my leftovers from dinner to work to eat the next day, but I started noticing that they pack a lot of calories and fat (since dinner is more robust) so it is almost like I am having dinner twice a day. any suggestions on how to avoid this?? I also dont want to waste the food we make.
