I don't really do New Year's resolutions, but I do sometimes make life changes that happen to coincide with the start of a new year... Anyway, last year one of my "life changes" was to eat less. I completely failed at doing that. I'm reaching the end of my twenties, and am dreading the metabolism slow down that happens in your thirties, and I never had a fast metabolism to begin with.
I've been through major weight loss before- once completely intentional with low calories and high-intensity exercise, and once because of a major depression meaning I had no appetite, and when I did try to eat, I would end up getting sick most of the time. Since then I've pretty much maintained the same healthy weight, but I would still like to eat less... I'm aiming for 12-1500 calories a day. I had the My Fitness Pal app on my iPhone which helped a lot, but my phone is not cooperating lately, and I know that I'm far too lazy to log onto My Fitness Pal on a computer and manually input my calories. I just won't do it.
Aside from the obvious- being conscious about portion control and pay attention to what you're eating, what are some other ways that you eat less?
