I keep a bowl of pink wintergreen mints on the coffee table. I find when I need something sweet, instead of reaching for the chocolate, I pop a couple of those in my mouth and suck on them. They're just sweet enough and the mint cleanses my palate. And they're only 12.5 calories each.

If I start 'craving' or wanting something that I know is not good for me to eat, I go brush my teeth if I am at home. And if I am out then I pop a piece of Mentos wintergreen gum. The mint taste from my toothpaste or the gum does not mix well with anything else and keeps my mouth busy so I'm not tempted to put something else in there.
