When I have an impulse to eat, or a craving I snap my wrist with the large rubber band that I wear 24/7. I snap the inside of my left wrist because it's more sensitive than the back of my wrist and because I am right handed.
This is a little trick taught to me when I was under the care of a bariatric specialist. (Aversion Therapy!) I got my rubber band off of a bunch of greens. The ones on asparagus work well too!

I buy fruits such as blueberries/strawberries/mago/pineapple/bananas and low fat yogurt. I got containers and measured each fruit and made different fruit combinations and freeze them. Each morning I open a container, add 1/4 cup yogurt and 1 cup milk or other dairy product and blend it up. Delicious and nutritious! ( I sometimes add 1/4tsp sugar) 4
I make each fruit batch 1-1 1/4 cups and it makes about 2 cups
I make a weekly fitness-meal plan. I am training for a half-marathon and get super hungry the day after a long run. Combining the meal planning with the fitness planning means I eat the right stuff for my level of activity. It also helps with the grocery shopping.
