When I have a free minute (and I'm not hungry) I divide the tempting foods up into reasonable portions. Then, when I want something, I can grab one of the portions, and that is all I get.

I also eat low calorie fruits or vegetables a little while before the meals where I may be tempted to eat to much. I don't feel quite so hungry when I start eating and I do better at stopping when I need to.

It also helps when I know the nutritional information of the food before I eat it. When I consider how long I would have to exercise to eat more, I usually decide it isn't worth it!

sorry i cant help too much as this is a difficult area for me too. Putting food on a smaller plate helps a little.

For me, the biggest hurdle is portion control. I could easily (supposing I could stop myself) eat about a third of what I'm eating now and be happy (and full) - I've done it before.

Does anyone have any tips or tricks for getting back into this habit?
