Go for yogurt when you need calories or are in doubt
If you find that you just ate under calories for the day, eat a cup or two of Fat Free Light yogurt. Most store brands carry a wonderful selection that will be around 100 cals, and less than 20 carbs (like Publix brand).
And the flavors are great! Instead of eating a piece of cake, I eat Black Forst Cake yogurt, or Carrot Cake yogurt.
There's a reason Michael & Fiona eat yogurt on Burn Notice - it's good for you, cheap to buy, & is great for energy!
I go shopping for yogurt if I even get down to 10 containers in my fridge drawer. I live for this stuff. And it's a great snack at night, and you can add more fruit to it if you like.
I'll Have a Slice of Birthday Cake AT THE RESTAURANT!
I LOVE to BAKE! The problem IS I LOVE to EAT WHAT I BAKE! So, now instead of baking a birthday cake or some other sweet that will last a week in the house,I celebrate the day by eating OUT and having the slice of cake,pie or sweet treat at a restaurant! That way I have my cake "SLICE" and eat it too
I KNOW I WILL celebrate with some sweet treat,but keeping only one slice within reach and OUT at a restaurant fulfills my sweet tooth,sense of celebration, and keeps the REST away from my waistline! That helps me "teach" my body that one piece is ENOUGH!
