Make this work for you.

1. Once in a while, casually mention to your boss how tired you are of recruiters emailing/calling/texting you all the time.

2. Tell a coworker your going to be a little late coming back from lunch with your buddy from $Your_biggest_competitor.

3. Tell your boss you have an "appointment" tomorrow, and you need to take an hour off. Show up the next day wearing your best suit and tie.

Your previous method - chop a pile of onions - throw them in the pot - go to the next ingredient. New method - chop a pile of onions - weigh them - throw them in the pot - go to the next ingredient.
 
Is it really that much more difficult?
 
Chopping a pile of onions takes 5 or 10 minutes; weighing them takes 15 seconds.
 
The meat you throw in probably has the weight on the package.
 
If you _don't_want_to_ figure out how many calories you are taking in, and just eat as much as you want, then go right ahead. Just don't pretend that it can't be done.

That's how I got off the ciggies. Got the idea from a "how to quit" book.First I switched to a brand that was about 10% lower nicotine than my regular smokes. Just made sure not to smoke any more for a few weeks. Then I started to figure out when I would smoke and cut out habitual smokes that were close (in time) to other habitual smokes. One before I got on the bus and one after became half a cig before and half a cig after. Then after a few weeks of that I switched brands again another 10% lower nicotine. Ran the cycle about 3 or 4 times. I started out at half a deck of Players Light a day and finished at 4 Matinee Slims (yeah I know) a day at which point I said Screw It and just quit.
