That's what i've found yeah. For me the change to eating smaller portions of healthier food, and eating a couple of extra times a day was the main thing. Once you get used to it, it's tough to get back into the bad habit of just one or two big meals.
I think most if it is common sense really, staying away from fried food, soft drinks, processed food, simple carbs etc.. If you do that in a way you can stick at, good things happen I find.
