HAHA I have the same problem and WISH I had a solution.
These things help me
Don't buy food that can be eaten easily. If it takes a lot of preparation then I'm likely not to go to the effort of preparing it.
Eat on smaller dishes. I know this sounds stupid but I eat smaller portions if its on a smaller plate.
Only cook as much as you plan to eat. I used to ALWAYS cook a little extra planning on storing it and then end up eating the whole thing.
Use measuring cups. If you allow yourself only - for example - 1/4 or 1/2 cup of grain with your veggies then thats what you'll eat. I used to just put food on the plate but when I measured it I was putting 2-4 cups of food on my plate!!! That is a LOT of food!!
Cut you carbs. Nothing makes you go NUTS like lots of carbs. If I've eaten carbs I feel like I'm pacing past the kitchen!! haha
