The way I think about it is to form an intention to eat less, while keeping in mind that we can only choose in each moment to keep to it or not. So we can let go of knowing, predicting, assuming – and of course feel free to choose.

And maybe if you aim for developing the skill of Working Through Desire, it doesn’t matter quite so much when and where you put that into practise. The priority isn’t necessarily what you are or are not eating (in the kitchen or at meals or wherever) as much as getting to a place where you can live peacefully alongside unsatisfied desire when it’s there.
