I have a notebook in Evernote with a separate note for each restaurant I visit and what the best options are for my diet plan in each. I don't write down the "best options" that I wouldn't like either - just what I'd actually order. With my smart phone, I have that custom reference to keep me on track.
Having a plan is half the battle, having it HANDY is the other half.
I always overpack my lunchbox - not because I want to overeat, but because I love having options. Having the option to choose whether I want to eat an orange or an apple, yogurt or string cheese, really helps me stay on track with my food choices. If I limit what I bring, I'm more likely to not want it and snack on something I shouldn't be eating. But having the choice of choosing what I want makes me eat something that I want instead of HAVING to eat what is there.
