    Breathe in and breathe out..... with every inspiration  think that it is important for you to control your urge and with every expiration think in your mind that you are losing the urge...

    This kind of yoga helps... Trust me smile

    Grab a piece of fruit and fill your glass with water. Go for a walk or throw the tempting food away! You must realize and accept the challenge you've signed up for. This is not a diet; it is a lifestyle change. Everyday is practice for the future. You don't have to be perfect. There is room for error. Try to make each day one more way of ensuring yourself a long and healthy future.

    Have a supply of fruit, things like grapes or bananas in your bag as an alternative . Plus thinking about the extra pounds you will put on if you eat the item, usually ends up being the deciding factor on not eating it.

    I have never in my life been on a weight loss diet of any kind.

    If you truly want to control your cravings all you have to do is fix your diet.  Most people eat junk and have no idea what it means to eat a "balanced diet".

    When you are eating properly your body will not trigger cravings of any kind.

    If  you drink soda, eat refined grains - pasta, bread, cereals, or fast food, or out of cans or packages, you are not going to defeat your cravings.  Food companies INTENTIONALLY engineer their products so it will CREATE CRAVINGS.

      While I mostly agree, there are circumstances where a person gains weight from being immobile, not of their own accord. I ate properly, but still gained a lot of weight when I was sick for over a year. I could not exercise.

      I guess a combination of exercise and diet will help and ofcourse avoiding the junk food and having great self control. Thank you.

    I look at a picture of me when I was 215 pounds, and know I never want to go there again!

    CLEAN! Seriously. Its helps. Also, sucking on low calorie hard candies help. I use butterscotch hard candies. They not only keep your sweet tooth away but distract your taste buds!

    If you enjoy cucumber, eat several a day. They have only 10 calories for a medium sized one and are yummy and will make you feel as if you are eating a lot due to the water content. I love to cut them like chips and add a little salt. YUM!

    Pickles, for the same reason, are great to munch on. Very low calories. These, however, have much salt!

    When you keep your hands and mind busy being creative when the urge hits it can help stop you from eating things you shouldn't. Check out how I managed to lose over thirty pounds. http://diana-lee.hubpages.com/hub/WRITE-AWAY-THE-POUNDS

    I keep healthy snacks available such as almonds, fruit and veggies.  I also will snack on hummus and pita bread is my calorie intake is low for the day.  One thing I have found that really helps to stabilize my blood sugar and cravings is eating a good sized, healthy breakfast in the morning.  Drinks at least 40  oz. of water a day (preferably more).  It helps curb your appetite and keeps you hydrated.

      Thank you, good ideas to keep off the cravings. Drinking water is definitely important.

    I'd grab something sweet. This usually curves down my appetite with almost everything. It's why I carry dried fruits every time I'm on travel. But thanks that I can eat anything without restrictions. I still need to gain weight. Thank you Vellur.

    Try to not skip meals and let yourself get hungry, this is them when you're most likely to binge.  Also be sure to keep plenty of healthy snacks around and don't let yourself feel deprived by trying to stick to a diet that is unrealistic.
