    How I kill my food cravings is either chew gum or drink health smoothies or shack, like naked smoothies or silk shakes or others that you can find in health food store, they seem to work for me.

    I have a pot of Yoghurt or a large cold juice drink.  I also try to avoid going in the kitchen so the cakes, chocolates and biscuits don't start winking at me.

    What works for me is to eat more foods higher in fiber... they fill you up and as a result you feel fuller longer... then i don't feel like eating so much...

    A couple of fiber foods i eat for snacks are apples and bananas and sometimes i will make a fruit smoothie in the morning with psyllium in it - which expands and makes me full.. but make sure you drink lots of water too especially with psyllium - it needs water big-time to properly assimilate through your body...

    Also high fiber foods will bring down your cholesteral and also help you lose weight too...

    Hope that helps... yikes)

    The only way to get good control on our food habit is to increase our sense of taste and slow eating of our little food. When we increase the sense of taste and time of eating we would easily get satisfied with our less quantity of food.

    have candles that smell like lemons or peppermint around the house.  It is proven that these smells decrease the urge to eat.  You could also try lemon water or peppermint tea.

    Cravings come from a few main factors. Adictive qualities (carbohydrates), Lack of nutrition- not eating 5-6 meals a day with 2 and a half to 3 and half hour intervals. Lastly false lack of nutrition do to dehydration- This is more complex, you see you can have all the nutrients in the world but if you dont have the water to transport them your body will register a lack of nutrients and you will want to eat more....Ending result, eat more protein and healthy fats as apposed to carbs (especially at night), Eat on regular and frequent intervals, And most important drink water all day.

    Eat some snacks that mainly have a majority of protein contained in them, and another great way is to drink alot of water.  Not only does it help you keep weight off, it keeps you healthy, makes you feel healthy, and keeps YOU FULL.  I promise this works, when i worked out with some bodybuilders i learned many things.
