If I'm craving a specific food or am planning on going to a specific restaurant for friends, I type in the meals I'm planning on eating for the day to check my calorie count. That way I can alter what I'm eating to accommodate the food I want to eat so I don't go over my numbers.

I keep measuring cups, measuring spoons, etc., in a bowl in on my countertop. This makes it easy for me to find the measurer I want, without digging through drawers or dish drainers for them. It makes meal and snack prep much faster for me. A food scale in a handy spot also helps!
Using measuring cups, spoons, and a food scale help keep calorie and nutrient counts more accurate on days that I use the food tracker.
using spark people .com as shown me you can eat any food in moderation the diet plan and food tracker gives me the confidence to plan what i can add to the menu and known that i will stay on track i have found that with spark diet plan the food is so filling i don't wont junk food.
Each morning when having my coffee I sit on computer and use my tracker to plan out my days food that I know I like and is healthy food from my refrigerator and pantry items so that I know what I am to eat and I have been more successful keeping within calorie range by using the tracker this way. I also feel more satisfied with what I do eat.
