Big Hiccup: Snacking Way Too Much!

I need some advice guys! So I love the idea of bringing lunch to work, and I've been doing great on it so far. But for some reason, I end up snacking on whatever is available in the office kitchen. Goldfish crackers, pretzel mix — you name it. I just keep munching and munching away! I get the munchies because I get pretty hungry. I'm not sure why that is because I pack quite a decent-size portion. What do I do?

I have the same problem, so I can only offer limited advise. One thing that helps me though is to set regular snack times. I eat lunch at 11:30, and I have snack exactly at 3:00. Also, if I get the munchies in the between times, I usually go for decaf hot tea. It really helps! Protein and fiber in your lunch will help with the hunger, but my munchies are usually just stress or boredom related.
