I keep a stash of 3 envelopes of instant no-fat, no-sugar hot chocolate mix at work for an afternoon when it's stressful so I don't visit the vending machines. One cup of hot chocolate sipped slowly usually does it.
If I go through the 3 envelopes quickly, it's a signal for me that I either need more outside physical exercise or that there is some issue I'm tempted to overeat about instead of dealing with it.

Freeze dark or any kind of decadent chocolate you like. I find that if I let the bag just sit in my cupboard I am more apt to just grab piece after piece until I've binged big time. Freezing it not only keeps you from overindulging, but letting it melt slowly in your mouth helps you feel satisfied with less.
My favorite chocolate is Lindt's 70-80% cacao dark chocolate.

Hey, give your man some chocolate!!! Chocolate does contain sugar & caffeine along with fat & calories, so eat chocolate in moderation. Chose dark chocolate which has the fewest calories. Oh Yum!
