Besides making sure I eat my snacks on time, whenever I feel like cheating I first make myself drink a big glass of ice cold water and then gargle with mint mouthwash. The mint mouthwash keeps you from eating for a bit because it ruins the taste of anything you put in your mouth for at least a half hour.
After the mint taste is gone, I re-assess whether I really want to eat or not. Usually I can talk myself out of it since the water hydrates me. I think the mouthwash trick gives the water time to work.
Of course it's not failproof, but it is a little trick that works for me!
