I would end up eating a bit less of the main meal but also just having that salad I found made me feel better etc. We don't really order take out and I just go grocery shopping once a week so I can avoid the temptations. If you don't have "quick foods" in your house then it forces you to learn to wait to make stuff.

Snacks that fill me up: whole grain pita with hummus (my "go to snack.")
veggies and hummus

Now, I say all this but I am pregnant now so I have not been as strict on myself
That's really a good way to lose adequate amount of weight
