It is filling. It solidifies in the system. If you are hungry and you have tried to fill up by eating, make sure to get your two glasses per day in. It will make a world of difference. Plus it will get your stomach moving as well. (Not so nice to mention but a definite fact)
So when I get hunger cravings, I drink some water. Til I feel like my belly is full. That helps keep me from eating unhealthy stuff. Plus, it helps get those 8 glasses out of the way much faster. Sometimes I feel hungry two minutes after I drank, well I just drink some more!!!
I "psych myself out" when it comes to unhealthy food. If I see fatty snacks in the breakroom at work I think about how they are probably stale from being out or that a lot of people may have touched them. Or I will pick out one thing about the food that I might not like and magnify it.
Don't be afraid to try new foods. You will have two results, you like it or you don't. Guaranteed you will find some new yummy, healthy foods to add to your daily diet.
Late night snacking used to be my biggest problem, but soon after I started eating bigger breakfasts, I noticed that I wasn't snacking at night anymore.

Have a problem taking vitamins? Throw em in a smoothie, you can throw just about anything in a smoothie.
Try to remember the old adage to eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper. That way your body is using your intake in proportion with your output.
Before you eat make sure to have a glass of water. Also, take a sip of water between every bite. That way you are increasing your water intake and decreasing how fast (and how much) you eat.
I found the best alternative to Rice Crispie Treats! Kellogg's Fiber Plus bars... I love the Chocolately Peanut Butter bar. You get 35% of your daily fiber, 9g, and 3g of protein. A great choice when I'm craving something chocolatey and chewy like RC treats!
