I have actually been doing it for past several months and it really works!! I keep a container of green peppers, celery, carrots in the refrig. Cut, clean, ready to eat. Take a serving in car when I have errands to run. For lunch, I grab a serving of it. Late at night, when I want something, I grab the already to go veggies instead of high calorie item. Secret, don't run out! if low, I make sure I get to store and clean and cut veggies to be prepared.

I have a notebook in Evernote with a separate note for each restaurant I visit and what the best options are for my diet plan in each. I don't write down the "best options" that I wouldn't like either - just what I'd actually order. With my smart phone, I have that custom reference to keep me on track.
Having a plan is half the battle, having it HANDY is the other half.
It works for me, and perhaps it'll work for you. I eat 4 meals a day, and for each meal, I make sure to have at least 2 glasses of water; I just take a sip between each bite. By the end of the day, I am able to meet (or go beyond) my water requirement.
Having a 16 oz water bottle helps.
