When you pick your snack, shoot for something that cannot be consumed in one bite. Choose a snack that you need to work at, or that takes a little time. Like string cheese, berries, grapes, dry cereal, etc. You will feel more satisfied as it took a little longer, and less likely to grab something not as nutritious after you are finished. Plus if you snack at the office it will break up the work day for a few minutes here and there.

If I have a week where I eat everything in sight and gain a pound or two I don't let it get to me. I'm not perfect and I'm not going to change years of bad habits and unhealthy choices when it comes to eating overight.
I'll buy extra of my favorite healthy snack like strawberries or mangoes the next week as a pick me up.
I try and find things to curb late night snacking and I recently was under the weather and was eating ice chips. Believe it or not..they seem to work w/ 'mindless' night snacking.it's time consuming to chew on them and helps with 'boredom' snacking. I even bought (at the dollar store) popsicle makers..i just fill em with cranberry juice (or other healthy stuff), freeze em and they're good for late nights too!
