Have posted a checksheet and reference sheet for what to eat
Use a weight loss plan notebook, with dividers for each section for reference. (Example.)
Carry with you, at all times, a wirebound notebook to record everything you eat, thoughts, etc., (you can use pages for other things, too, as this is a top strategy for all highly productive people.
Have with you at all times a "spreadsheet" of instructions - and look at it when you need to know what to do - kind of a guideline sheet. (Until I set up a prototype, see my own Dashboard.)
