First, get rid of all your vice foods. If that's not possible, have some healthier alternatives. What about popcorn? You can air-pop some popcorn and then season it as you like.
Also, if you know that you do most of your compulsive eating during a particular activity, don't do that activity. Find other ways to unwind. Read a book, paint your nails, massage your feet, call a friend, take a walk, organize a closet, de-clutter a drawer or take a bubble bath or shower.
You can drink some tea or chew some gum. You can cut up some celery into slices and eat those. I find they have a slightly salty after taste. You can dip celery into some salsa or pico de gallo, which might give you that salty satisfaction.
It takes about a month to change a habit, but it's worth trying. I hope you figure it out. I know that I haven't been able to figure out anything long term but I'm trying.
