In brief: Water

Drink plenty of water. Also when you think you are hungry, do something to distract yourself.
Cravings often go away after 5-10 minutes. So take a walk, call a friend, do a yoga pose, write an email.

In brief: Reduce hunger

Sometimes exercise and the body chemicals produced by it can give patients a mild euphoric/appetite suppressant effect.
Other than that some weight meds rx could help under the care of a weight specialist physicianbut really, hunger feelings felt by your body have 30 chemical interactions mostly linked to your brain and gut. True hunger is not controlled by "thought" just like our breathing, sleep.
