I have the same problem. I have found that if I just have a small amount I can be satisfied. For instance, I bought some jelly beans. The ones that I bought are 5 calories each. So, if I eat 10 jelly beans, I am only out 50 calories. If I suck on them and let them melt in my mouth, I am completely satisfied. I pack 10 in my lunch each day and eat them in the late afternoon when the craving hits. If I can do it, I KNOW YOU CAN! I used to eat 2 candy bars a day, sometimes 3.
20 down and 40 to go.
