You should eat protein (in the morning would be good, for example) and drink a lot of water (1.5-2L/a day) during the day! You could eat some eggs, fish or cheese, for example. They are healthy (depending of the quantity) and keep yourself from being hungry
Never skip a meal, always eat 3 times a day, even if you don't have so much time. Good luck!

I find that most of the time I eat, it's because i'm bored. Get out more, take your mind off food or even hop onto this site and get your head back into the right mindframe - to feel better about yourself

Eating enough protein can make a huge difference in your hunger and random cravings.

Shirataki/Konjac/Konyaku noodles are great for bulking out broths and soups. 0 calories, pure fibre, and have a noodle texture. And they re 100% natural and eaten across SE Asia.
--edit: Thats the 100% konjac noodles, not the soy/konjac mixed noodles. The Soy versions are still very low calories too of course.

A different view on things:
I have done this myself twice this week: Try to NOT eat between dinner one day and dinner the next. At all. Zip. Then have a tiny dinner, no more than 500 calories. No snacks that day. Next day, back to normal.
This is SURPRISINGLY easy, even if it sounds hard. It will show you a little more about hunger, and how surprised you will be when you realize that it doesn't keep getting worse. It gets to a certain point, and then slowly goes away again. Once you feel it, you will be much better at handling hunger.
what's gonna happen if we don't eat a few hours? Are we gonna starve to death? explode? I doubt it.
I never considered this until very recently, and it has COMPLETELY changed my perspective on things. It has taken away my desperation to get to my next meal.
Try it! It'll teach you something interesting.
I completely agree with this. I find it much easier to eat nothing at alltwice a week than to restrict myself every day. Hunger does not keep getting worse if you don't eat. It just goes away for several hours. Google Michael Mosely 5:2 for more info.

Calories do not fill a person up. Volume in the stomach not calories make a person feel full. Eat all the vegetables and whole fruit you want. Eating more of the right foods is the way to go. There is no reason to ever be hungry.

Avocado mixed with salt, pepper, chives, a little white vinegar just to make smooth. Mix it up and spread it on bread w/ a tomato and spinach leaves! THE BEST!!!
