Even though they don't suggest eating in front of a TV or computer, I do. I pre-portion my meals. I only eat in front of my work PC. When I have dinner at the table with my family, I'm always the first one done and I feel less fulfilled with my meal....
So, for breakfast and lunch, I take my pre-portioned meal and take small bites between work or the lunch-break spark browsing. I'm usually more involved with the computer than the meal so this helps me to slow down and allow the food to do its magic of making me feel fuller.

Find yourself digging through the cupboards and end up eating something that you aren't even hungry for, just because the box/packaging had a bright, appetizing, appealing picture? I turn ALL my boxes/jars/cans/cartons/containers/bags so that the "front" (i.e., the side with the huge picture of what it is) is facing the back of the cabinet, so that when I'm digging around for something to eat, I'm not met with an army of pictures!
I always divide my food into single servings. For example, with Kashi cereal, I will divide the entire box into serving sizes, put them in zip baggies and put them back into the box. This way when I am getting ready for my day at work, I just grab a bag and I am good to go. I do the same thing with Wheat Thins, etc. It works great and I always know what I am eating and how much!
