At work it's not too bad. I can only eat what I bring. I don't bring money in with me so the vending machine is not an option.
At home I try to have fresh fruit on hand all prepped for easy snacking, individual cheese sticks (string cheese), etc.
At the store or in a restuarant that's tough. Distraction and really thinking through how a bad choice will feel.

Things haven't changed...You have.

Take responsibility for who you are and who you want to be.

I can honestly say, I don't deal with cravings well. Nine times out of ten, I cave.....but try to make up for it in others areas (like increase exercise, cut calories in next meal).

Distraction!

Also trying to eat more protein at mealtimes.

If that doesn't work, I indulge in a little treat that helps to satisfy the urge:
- Diet hot cocoa
- Crystal Light Lemonade or just very lemony water.
- A huge plate of salad (for crunchy cravings)
- Fresh fruit, maybe dipped in yogurt
- Slow churned ice cream
- A hard candy

Sometimes I'm actually just tired not hungry. I'm trying to get better at realizing this and doing a few jumping jacks to get the blood moving or have a cup of coffee if I really need it.

My gut instinct is to say "poorly," but I've been resisting check-out aisle candy (one of my biggest weaknesses) for a few weeks now. Next, resisting at home.
