I've seen that you had many viewers of this post but no responses! Made me laugh, Perhaps everyone is having the same problem! It really is hard!
What I snack on is hard boiled eggs, (which I know, isn't very pleasant in an office!) cheese sticks, celery with cream cheese, grilled chicken strips, sometimes even just iceberg lettuce, it's crunchy and a bit more satisfying than romaine or the like. I don't eat meat but I've heard some people like to keep pepperoni slices nearby too. I know none of it sounds too exciting but it does help take the edge off sometimes. I'm always open for more suggestions too!

I have a cube fridge at work. So I keep mayo, pickle spears, olives, ham slices, cheese, atkins shakes (love cafe mocha) and flavored water on hand. I also keep plain pork skins, sardines canned in hot sauce, and the paper packs of tuna and/or salmon in a drawer nearby. I buy the plain walmart skins and have eaten them straight, or with tuna and mayo on top or with the sardines.

Gee, I just realized how country I am. But that is what I do.

I like to make up deviled eggs to snack on. String cheese, a TBSP of peanut butter, almonds, The little to-go packs of sugar-free jello, LC yogurt these are my snack items.
