Here are some tips to prevent yourself from falling into that comfort food trap.

The key to tipping the scale starts with cooking at home.    
Pumpkin is low in calories and fat, there’s no need for heavy creams to thicken it.
Also, substituting spaghetti squash for pasta is a healthier alternative.
You can also try roast vegetables instead of sautéing or frying.
Vegetables, being lower calorie and having more fiber, and more fluid — they are going to end up keeping you fuller longer, so this is a good way to bulk up the diet with more food.

It also helps you think that you are going to stay fuller longer without giving a lot of extra calories.
Eating leaner cuts of meat and tracking food intake can also help you avoid unwanted weight gain.
