Small changes

When cooking or eating the smallest changes can make a big difference such as using non fat sour cream and lower fat cheeses. That is also true when eating condiments. I always go for the liter versions. I also try to stay away from white flour and sugar. I try to eat whole wheat products.

Seasonally Eating

I find eating seasonally is cheaper, because most foods in season are on sale and it helps me keep a varied diet, which I find easier to stick to than the same tired old standby meals!

Green Tea

Around an hour before dinner time, I typically get the munchies. That is now my tea time. Use Decaf Green Tea and it adds to your water intake.

Old Fashioned Oatmeal

On Sunday take the time to make a pot of old fashioned oatmeal the long cook kind. Divide it into 1-cup servings into containers that can refrigerate and microwave. You have a nutritious breakfast for the rest of the week that is not the processed sugary instant king.

Pack Healthy

Pack healthy snacks for when you are at work or on road trips, and keep the change and $1's at home, so you are not tempted to put it in to a vending machine on a unhealhy snack.

Start small and build on successes.

Half a sandwich instead of a whole one, one cookie instead of two, little adjustments that don't totally deny you what you want, but make a difference in your overall caloric intake. Over time, the progress you make with small changes will inspire larger ones and build your forward momentum!

Keep your hands busy!

To keep mindless snacking in check, find a good fidget. For example, I knit, so I keep small knitting projects by my computer, the TV, by my desk at work, etc. That way, I have something to do during downtime and I'm less likely to go find food.
