If you don't have an icebox upstairs, there is no easy access to anything to eat, you have to think...Am I really THAT Hungry?? Do I really WANT to make that trip up & down the stairs again?? Trust me, it gets tiring. Added bonus, if you do decide you are that hungry & it is worth another trip up & down the stairs you automatically burn calories!
I learned this when my kitchen icebox went out! I'm TIRED of Eating!!! LOL

Place clean coffee cans filled with charcoal briquette's (not those with lighter fluid) around your basement, they will absorb basement smells. You can change the briquette's every 3 or 4 months, you can tell when they need changing. I have a large basement and have 6 cans down there. 334
My washer and dryer are in the basement, so when I go down to do or check on laundry, I do about 5 minutes of sweeping, decluttering, etc. Seeing things getting cleaner little by little is motivation to keep it up. My basement is almost clean now, almost painlessly.43
