Use the food and activity tracking tools to enter your planned meals for the day. This way you can gauge how your calorie intake looks and make adjustments before eating. Adding exercise also helps to make it more scheduled and committed to.

I don't taste until I track! I put this rule in place for myself because skipping once is a slippery slope. And by making sure my food is logged before I indulge, I can see how much my choice will "cost" me and make a last minute change if necessary!
I've ditched food at the last minute that should have never made it to my plate because I tracked it first :)
