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!
If I eat out, aside from the normal recommendations for trimming calories (sauce on side, pack half right away or share, etc), I eat all of the veggies in my portion before I move onto the proteins or carbs. Helps me make sure I fill up on healthier things first!
