Get a dog! Seriously, whilst not everyone's lifestyle is suitable, that has been one of the most significant strategies I've used. It has enabled me to prioritise exercise (first walks and now running where she is always my companion so I am not dependent on a human buddy) and I can rein back on the urge to clear my plate myself. She can tolerate almost all leftovers (apart from those known to be toxic to dogs anyway like chocolate) except for Quorn and large quantities of chips. I love home made pizza but even with sparing Italian style toppings, the dough is a lot of calories to accommodate. But I bring it down by giving her my crusts. (And no, she's not overweight)
