Pause and think what the trade off is and what you are going to eat now vs later. Look at it like spending your money- if you buy this then you can't have that. Make that conscious choice every time you eat.

I really hate wasting food. Given a choice between wasting and shoving that last morsel down my throat I would eat that last bite (or even the last serving) rather than waste it. THROW IT AWAY! If it can be saved I save it, but if my ONLY 2 choices are eating it or pitching it, I now choose to pitch.
Mindless eating is a diet killer. Ever go to track your food and realize you've eaten way more little things than you thought you did? Just stop and take a second to think about each morsel you put in your mouth. Is this something you really wanted to eat? If not, have a glass of water or choose a healthier snack instead. Mindful eating is happy and healthy eating :)
