I try to make a bag of frozen veggies with every dinner. I eat the veggies first, before moving on to any other food. After I'm done with a bag of veggies I am almost full, and therefore I don't eat too much of anything else. Pig out on the veggies, and then you won't be able to pig out on the dessert and other fattening foods!
Something that I found really helps me lots is starting my meals with the veggies. They say you should never go hungry, but now that my body is used to eating at regular times, I'm instinctively hungry at meal times. And I do love veggies, but when I'm hungry I want MOAR REAL FOOD. Even when you're full, it takes a while for that information to reach your brain. So I found that when I finish my vegetables first, I'm less hungry when I reach the main course, and less likely to reach for seconds.
