When I am cooking if I cook more servings than I need to eat it is just too tempting for me and I end up eating more than I should, even if I try to separate it out for the week and put it in the refridgerator, so instead I just cook one serving (Unless of course I am cooking for others as well.) This removes the temptation of eating extra food.

I love girl scout cookies. Back in my psp days (pre-sparkpeople) i could eat a whole box. I don't want to give them up all together, plus the money goes to a good cause. So, when I got my boxes I sectioned all of the cookies out into baggies based on the serving size and put them in my snack basket in the cupboard. I can still eat them, just one serving at a time :)
Most people hate having to weigh and measure their food portions. To save time, get a plate that has three section in it. The largest section should be for your salad/veggies serving, one of the smaller ones is for your protein serving and the other one is for your carbs/starches.
No fair piling on the food though it has to fit inside the section neatly
