I have a notebook in Evernote with a separate note for each restaurant I visit and what the best options are for my diet plan in each. I don't write down the "best options" that I wouldn't like either - just what I'd actually order. With my smart phone, I have that custom reference to keep me on track.
Having a plan is half the battle, having it HANDY is the other half.
We have a spending plan (budget). On payday, I go to the bank and get certain budget categories out in cash: food, clothes, allowance, fun, gifts and haircuts. Having a plan and using cash is huge! And, allowance for grown-ups (we call it "mad money") helps to keep adult wants in check too.
