If you want to feel satisfied and kill carb cravings at the same time, then head on over to lean protein. That means low fat dairy, poultry, fish and beans. You can also buy whey protein powder at any Whole Foods, GNC or Vitamin Shoppe. I like to combine vanilla powder with skim milk and frozen berries for a protein shake -- two scoops of protein equals 20 grams which is very satisfying.
You're probably not eating enough protein. Most people overeat carbs, especially ones filled with refined sugars. Refined sugars (white sugars) increase your insulin levels through the ceiling and then they come crashing down stimulating a major appetite for more sugar. It's a vicious cycle you want to avoid.
Stick with lots of non-starchy veggies and healthy fats like olive oil and nuts. Just watch out for what I call "bingeables" -- foods that feel addictive to you, and you can't seem to have just one. And if you have one, you'll end up eating a mountain of them.
Finally, try to eat a balance of healthy protein, carb and fat roughly every 3-4 hours beginning with breakfast. That will help to quell your hunger and appetite, as well.
