Don't resort to high-calorie takeout three nights a week, or worse, make a dinner out of a bag of chips with salsa. To prevent unhealthy choices, arm yourself with a meal plan for the week. Make a list of everything you''ll need for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks, then head to the grocery store to shop for the ingredients. There's no shame in cooking just two or three times and eating leftovers the other nights.
