I agree 100%. I am a meal planner. I always know what I'm eating for the entire next day down to the gram. Once in a while it changes (ie, last minute meal out or something comes up) but most of the time it's right on.
I journal on the computer and on my blackberry - for example, as of now, I already have tomorrow's meal plans worked out and journaled. I plan B, S, L, S, D, S and almost always have the same number of points dedicated to each meal, dinner being the number one variance.
I cook as many meals as I can during the weekend and freeze them into portion sizes. It saves me time and effort.
I feel like I eat so often that there is no time for me to be wondering what to eat and giving me enough time for my emotions to take over.
