Eat watch in action

The eat watch is finally complete. First we discovered how to monitor the balance between calories in and calories out and now, by planning menus with specific calorie content, we've provided the second aspect of the eat watch, the signal that tells you when to stop eating. With menu planning, the signal is obvious. Prepare the food for each meal in the proper quantity, eat it all, then shut yo' mouth. What could be easier?

Before we apply this new-found tool to weight loss, we need to discuss some problems with meal planning in the real world and what can be done about them.
