The suggested meal plans provided by SparkPeople has really helped me to cut calories. Even when I make substitutions, they help me with my menu planning. I found that before I was getting too many carbs (bread, rice, potatoes) and not enough fruits and veggies or protein. I, also, found out that it's ok to use canned applesauce or fruit instead of fresh which helps me stick to a healthy eating plan. It's not about perfection. It's doing the best that you can.

I like to use my Sundays to make meals for the rest of the week. I chop my veggies and put them in plastic storage bowls for my lunches. I cook one thing in the slow cooker to eat on all week. I portion it out for my meals so I never over eat it.
