I always try to eat before leaving my house, and take a full bottle of fresh/cold water. If you have a protein shake or meal, (something healthy), before leaving the house, you will be less tempted to indulge while at the mall food court and can avoid eating out at a restaurant where you might not know the nutritional info.

I find it very helpful to always carry a tote bag with me that has apples, nuts, string cheese, yogurt (if I can keep it cool). I never leave the house without it and even take it to family and friend's houses when I visit. It helps me stick to eating what is right if I get hungry away from home.
By taking the time up front to prepare and think of myself I resist the temptation of stopping for a quick candybar or a bag of chips.
