Carrots, celery, cukes, popcorn, apples... anything low calorie and crunchy, they're all your friends.

I agree with you. Having a strategy to deal with difficult times of the day works. I have a few things that work for me. I rely on doing needlework of some kind. I have the tv on to distract my mind and my hands are busy with the sewing. I’ve mad many quilts, Christmas stockings for the family, toys for babies, etc. I also go through e-mail. Adult coloring books also work. Anything that keeps my hands busy and my mind actively thinking of something other than food works. Good luck.

Don't try harder, try smarter! What's your strategy? If that's your munchy time, what can you have on hand to eat instead? Can you walk it off and have a cup of coffee or tea? A 100 calorie snack? Is it easier to eat a lower calorie lunch and save more calories for an afternoon snack?

Most of the day was great. However, towards late afternoon I fall prey to the munchies and go overboard because I feel that I already messed up. But tomorrow is another day to push through and try harder.
