Ha ha.. know exactly what you're talking about. Mine are usually one of the four following types:
1) craving something sweet - one square of chocolate (27Cal) usually doesn't do it so I go for either the Carbmaster yogurt (60Cal and very low carbs) or the Light and fit Greek yogurt - very low carbs (this one is great when I want a lot with little impact as it truly feels like heavy Greek yogurt but it only has 80 Cal. Or I go for the lowfat activia (only 60 Cal).
2) craving carbs - Quaker lightly salted rice cakes (only 35Cal and 7g carbs!) I practically use this instead of a bread. You can put ham on it, light goat cheese, or jam. Scrambled eggs are also great with it.

3) craving sweet and carbs - Quaker chocolate crunch rice cakes (60 Cal and 12g carbs OR better option Quaker apple cinnamon rice cakes (50 Cal and 11g carbs).

4) craving meat/something salty or sour - You can never go wrong with deli sliced ham or turkey as it has no carbs and it's mostly protein. Grilled fish or chicken breast is also great. I like to add sourcraut or pickled cauliflower/mushrooms/assorted veggies. I also like lightly cooked cauliflower scrambled with egg white or egg - this really fills you up and has low impact/low calories. Spinach with egg white sprinkled with garlic salt is also good side dish with meat.

When it's late and I know I won't get a chance to "work it out", I make sure to first drink glass of water before any of the above.. it fills me up and I eat less.
Hope this helps :)

Usually eat some bread, yogurt or a bit of leftovers. Hate it to be hungry specially when going to bed.

I either have carrots or cucumber and dip or black tea or green tea which fills me up fast.

Cravings are usually ur bodies way of telling you their is somthing missing frm your diet whether its magnesium calcium protien iron etc...if your starving your not eating enough as hunger pains is your body telling you tht your not getting enough food ...  if your hungry try adding a salad with a lean chicken breast cubed and use a vinegarette for your dressing...its clean and healthy and won't hurt your diet at all
