What is causing the stress? Deal with that and you might find the cravings diminish.
Take some time to practice some relaxation breathing techniques. Focus on your breathing and ensure it is NOT coming from your chest, but rather lower down, and that it is controlled. A lot of people tend to breathe more quickly when they are stressed.
Listen to some relaxing music, or take a nice relaxing bath. If you don't have lavender oil or similar, try putting some favourite perfume into the bath water and soak up the relaxing energy.
Read a book or read some articles on SP - there are some very good ones on this very topic.
Have you got a hobby? Knitting? Crocheting? Scrapbooking? If so, turn to that to distract you.
If none of that works, try slowing chewing on something that might help to satisfy the craving. i.e., if you are craving sweet things, try nibbling on a date. Take your time over it. Or cut up a piece of fruit and nibble on that.
