I'm not as much of an anal planner now that I'm maintaining, but I definitley was insane on weight loss.
I cut most of the veggies on Sunday when I get them home from the supermarket. I only buy the Chiquita pre-sliced pre-packaged apples, it's less of a mess. There's always pre-cooked chicken breast strips in the freezer that can be nuked for a quick meal. As for the starches, whenever I open a box of crackers, the whole package gets portioned into the right size servings. My first 8 weeks on program was x-mas time when I was working the crazy 80 hour weeks. Turkey burgers were my friend, they were the right size to easily portion as a 1/2 or a full protein. String cheeses are my friends in terms of dairy--it's an easy one ounce of cheese to grab.
The other major tip, most of the gladware have the measurement imprinted on the bottom. For lunches, I simply fill up the appropriate size container for veggies.
