Yet another Healthy Eating question! Naturally thin people (and people who've maintained significant weight loss for a long time): do you manage your meals/portions in such a way that you never are really concerned about how much you've eaten, OR, are you constantly compensating for eating too much or too calorically?

The "new, state of the art" cardio machines at my gym always tell me my heart rate is unreasonably high (170 beats per minute) even though I'm working at a level where I can still maintain a breathy conversation. Occasionally, the machine will say my heart rate is something totally wacky, like 220. [more inside]
What the hell is wrong with my foot? I sprained it very mildly last July, and its still swollen! [more inside]
Sometimes I am in a rush and run into a convenience store to buy lunch. Problem is, I want that lunch to be reasonably healthy (lowish fat, minimal chemicals), without resorting to buying the 'fake versions' of junk foods (like baked potato chips, low-carb candy bars etc). Those foods usually have too many ingredients with 7 syllables each for my comfort. (There's nothing healthy about 'food' created in a chemistry lab.) So basically I always end up staring blankly at the shelves, and then buy an energy bar.
So - what would you suggest for a healthy(ish) lunch from a convenience store?
