I think it is great you are going to try to eat healthier!
I agree with the comment about cooking light--good resource there.
For food you don't have to prepare yourself--lean cuisine has good options, and weight watchers has snacks and frozen items that are really pretty good.
But seriously, don't forget the exercise-- you'll lose the weight faster be being more active. I have been using the "walk away the pounds" videos in combination with dieting.
Just 2 cents from someone whose lost 24 lbs and counting since the end of May.
