I write every single thing I'll be eating for the day in the morning. If I deviate from that, I have to go back and revise my Food Tracker.
This really helps me when I'm at work. I don't like to snack on thing that I either don't know the calorie count for, or the mindless snacking that I might do. Mostly because I hate to go back and add/subtract things from the tracker.

Food tracking can be tedious and time consuming, so I find it helps me stay on track if I track my food a week ahead. I plan my menus and write up my grocery list every weekend anyway, so while I'm at it, I fill out my SP logs for the week. During the week, I only need to track my water and make minor modifications as they come up. Also, once it's out there, I seem more likely to stick to it!
