Plan meals for a week at a time--and more than just dinner! Plan breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even snacks if you want to. This makes you less likely to cheat or eat junk. You can also "build in" times for eating things like birthday cake--eat light that day so you can enjoy the treat guilt-free!

When its time for plan my meals and make a grocery list, I tak out my dinner notebook. My dinner notebook contains, pages of dinners that my family likes. Under each dinner, I include a list of the items I need for each meal (not the recipe). That way when its time to make my grocery list, it cuts the time in half.
Meal planning is always a problem for me, and trying to plan healthy meals makes me even more food obsessed-what ot buy what to make etc. So for now I am relying on Lean Cuisine dinners. I'm freed up, don't have to plan as much and am no longer obsessed with meals, what to eat etc.
