Cereal portions are a lot smaller than the bowls we eat out of! When I have actually measured out the serving sizes, they are so small I end up deciding to double it--not like I need the calories! An easy fix is to pour the milk into the bowl first. The cereal seems to settle into an empty bowl, but if the milk is already there, the bowl appears more full, and that makes it easier to accept the portion size as a decent meal.

Keep something healthy and convenient at the front of your fridge so you can grab it quickly when you need something NOW. Whether you pre-package your own portions or use grocery store convenience foods like carrot snack packs, it will make a huge difference in what you eat if it's something easy for you to grab.
You can pre-portion salad into bowls, pre-cut vegetables for snacking, and pre-portion nuts so you don't overdo it.
