For me, cutting sugar out of my diet has helped tremendously with cravings. It takes a full week of white knuckling it but once you get to the other side, it really does get easier. My husband was able to overcome his cravings after only 24 hours. Having yogurt with granola or fruit causes a sharp spike in insulin and then a crash, causing you to have more cravings later. I suggest something like celery with almond butter or a string cheese with an apple, or even chunks of avocado with carrots, etc.. You end up having low amounts of sugar, fiber and protein (as well as maybe some healthy fat) and that will sustain your appetite longer.
