Making certain that all food choices in my kitchen are healthful choices helps me to stay on track with my goals. I follow the You On A Diet eating approach by Drs.. Oz and Roizen. I've done the same with the food I have at my office. I have small baggies of healthy treats such as almonds or walnuts, a few pieces of fruit and some single serving organic soups. Here' a link to my grocery list: http://www.sparkpeople.com/m ypage_public_journal.asp ?id=MAIZEY
I clear my cupboards of the foods that may be tempting, I am able to make my kitchen a "no wrong choice zone". My husband has a few favorites that he wants around, so one small cupboard has his treats. I steer clear of that cupboard - out of sight, out of mind!

If I can't keep these foods out of my cupboards, I keep foods that I don't want to have easy access to (think chips, chocolate, etc) in plastic bags and bury them in the cupboards and back of the refrigerator. I also keep the good foods I want to munch on (veggies, fruit, nuts, etc) in the front of the fridge and cupboard. That way I'm organically creating healthy habits by making it hard to get the bad foods mindlessly.
When I'm really hungry or I want to eat because I'm bored or frustrated, I have a tendency to ear what I shouldn't - i.e - icecream, cookies, etc. If I don't have them in the house, I can't reach for them. Clean out your cupboards and fridge. If they are not in the house, you can't eat them!
