For me, I try to put off my small indulgences to have with breakfast. If I am craving something sweet, I make myself wait until the following morning to indulge: "Ok... I will have one oreo cookie with my greek yogourt and raspberries." I find that this stops me from going crazy for the day, because I have a specific plan to indulge--and then most of the time when breakfast the next morning rolls around I no longer feel like indulging.
