I find myself overloaded at my office and deciding to take a later lunch than usual. At those points I am so hungry and just craving that junky sugary stuff from the vending machines. I like to keep a ziploc baggie of natural almonds in my desk drawer to munch on in emergencies.
I try to follow Dr Oz's rule of thumb...drink a cup of water each time you drink a cup of coffee..
Water doesn't make you lose weight, but does help in the process of losing weight. It is part of the important factors of weight loss.
Often I have to serve dinner later than I would like, since we always try to sit down together. To keep from over eating because I am too hungry , a small snack holds me over and I can wait dinner comfortably. It doesn't take much, less than 100 calories and I am fine.
Sugar free Jello and fat free cool whip help me with keep cravings down. Add some fresh fruit and you have a healthy and delicious dessert
When checking out at the grocery store use the self-service line. You will be busy ringing up your own order and won't be tempted to scan the candy display.

I shop 3 -4 times a week now instead of once a week . That way I have the freshest produce and meats and my meals are prepared with optimal products. Using ingredients made from scratch are healthier and tastier. My family has noticed the difference in quality too.
Frozen grapes are awesome! Wash them, and put them in snack size bags to grab and go. Enjoy!
Watch your calories but still try and consume tasty food you're actually excited for. Limiting yourself too strictly will lead to unhapiness with your diet and/or binge eating.
Sometimes I get so sick of drinking water all day long. To keep it interesting, I always carry a box of herbal teas with me. Herbal teas have lots of good ingredients and keep you drinking water. Also, it's great hot AND cold!
