One thing my body has told me is that I will crave more food if my nutritional needs are not met, whether I've eaten 2,000 calories or 5.000 calories. As an example, if I've eaten 5,000 calories of mainly simple carbohydrates, my body still will call out for the protein and other nutrients I've missed. If I eat a lot of complex carbohydrates and meet my protein, etc. requirements, I won't feel the cravings.

Don't sweat the Small Stuff--but make sure it is small!
Do the math on thing you eat in small quantities over the course of the day, to find out if it's worth adding the to your food tracking. In my case, I don't worry about tea (I drink a lot, but it's a negligible calorie count), but do measure out and track nuts to snack on at work (because, a few nuts at a time, I can eat a half-cup over the course of the day).
Anytime that a quality copy isn't necessary use "grayscale" and lower quality print settings, such as "draft" or "fast print".
These settings can usually be found under "Preferences" when you are ready to print. Use the pull-down menu to print rather than the printer icon on your toolbar and you'll be able to adjust your printing options as needed.
