This may sound like common sense, but with our busy lifestyles, pre-planning meals in advance is far from simple. However, pre-planning is essential.
For most of us all we can do to just keep up with day's activities, much less cook in advance. It really boils down to time management. If you have good choices in refrigerator, you will be more likely to eat that food. When healthy foods are unavailable, you will go out of your way to pantry, pizza parlor, or fast food restaurant for immediate gratification.
In a nut shell:
In some instances what we eat, when we eat it and how much we eat is due to a physiological reaction. However, it could be both emotional and physiological. Eating right has a lot to do with how you look at food, how much you eat and what you eat. Recognize if you have eating patterns. The patterns may be lifestyle, emotional, physically related or all above. Pre-planning meals and shopping ahead solves a lot of poor decision making. Learn to push yourself away from table.

Here are my suggestions:
1. If you have excessive eating habits, they may be emotionally related. Figure out your bad habits and counteract them.
2. Pre-plan week, if possible. You'll make better choices if you have better choices from which to choose.
3. Food journal twice a month with times, types and amounts of food eaten.
4. Snacking throughout day helps overeating.
5. Eat until comfortable - you will eat tomorrow.
6. Eat with your opposite hand.
7. Sit while you are eating.
