This past Monday (1/14) I transitioned from my job at a casual dining restaurant to a desk job. In the first week alone I gained three pounds, despite packing my lunch and accounting for my calories. I know the issue here is transitioning from constantly running around in the restaurant to a stagnant position. I'm currently in the process of cutting back my calories to match the little bit of movement that I am getting now, but my body tends to freak out on me, thinking that I'm not eating enough (based on my last year and a half of dieting), and I end up binge-eating when I get home (things like cheese and peanut butter).

My question is, outside of keeping track of calories, is there any easy way to get your body comfortable in this transition?
