I have the same problem.

For me, I find:

I have to eat throughout the day so:

PORTION SIZE.

I love nuts as a snack but cannot be left to my own devices with them so I buy 100 calorie packs (they have cocoa and cinnamon ones too) or I portion them out. I portioned my breakfast ham (lean, low fat) into packages and use one with egg whites and veg.

FRUITS AND VEG help. I know, I know, so original. But they do help.

Find snacks you like and have some,the key being SOME. Feeling deprived, as you know, is what makes us binge.

PLANNING helps. I have been stuck at the same weight forever it feels like. So I make plans and try to stick close to them. I do leave room for spontaneity but at least I have a strategy. Plus I track it on FD and see what works. If I gain weight back, I look back over my "good days" and try to stay with that.

MOVEMENT. I am very physically limited but even a little walking is better than nothing.

So no great insight...But yeah this is tough. I wish you the best with it.
