Overall, low or moderate carb is a good plan. Calories in/Calories out should be your primary concern, irregardless. A good exercise plan never hurt anyone.
I hate this mentality, it's not as simple as "it's in your mind". Every body has different needs, and that is expressed in different ways for each person. You shouldn't try to stop your hunger, you need to learn what your body is asking for. Also, it's exactly that mentality that causes so many eating disorders in young people. The idea that you are in control of your mind... but in reality you are just doing your body harm. There is a reason we get cravings.

The only time it's a mental issue is if you eat without feeling hungry.

I think you ought to reread my post. I'm not going to debate opinions that I don't have.
I will highlight and reiterate the key points for emphasis. You clearly misunderstood or misinterpreted the text. Here goes:

Here, I didn't oppose snacking or eating. I simply suggested that 'certain foodstuffs' are most certainly the sources of empty calories, nutritional imbalances, and a psychological need to feed upon them. For example, I would replace certain foods for others, but I did not suggest she stop snacking. I would never have suggested such a thing. What is there to hate about my mentality, thus far?...

This means: Learn to recognize healthier choices, and make them. For many people, this is a huge undertaking in rewiring the urges and habits which are eminating from...the mind. You guessed it. The mind. Every thought, action and deed, originates...one more time...the mind. No matter who you want to blame or defend, the body will only bring about the actions and effects which the mind dreams up.

So is it in your mind? Heck yes. It's in all of us to grab our worst habits by the horns and make them bow before us. Anyone who believes otherwise is lethargic at best, emotionally weak at worst. Without first thinking and believing, wanting and burning and working for change in self, nothing changes for the better.

Discipline is essential. Responsibility is essential. A desire to change something which is your's and within your power alone, requires both.

Not once did I suggest an extreme or dangerous act on one's self; However, you suggested that my mentality gives birth to eating disorders. Not true. My mentality gives way for hard work and results. Nothing you said was factual in any sense of the term.

What my problem is is snacking. Once I get home from school, I'm hungry and I "convince"myself to have a bag of almonds or an apple or something. Something small, but once I eat something I want more. I pop gum into my mouth just to have something to chew on. But how do I stop letting myself over eat snacks. I eat healthy as possible. I'm good with Breakfast and lunch, but when I get home, it's game over.
You could have a snack when you get home of granola, yogurt and some frozen berries. This should tide you over until dinner and give you some good nutrients as well.

It's better to have multiple small meals then only a few large ones, so snacking isn't a bad thing.

She clearly states in her original post that she eats as healthy as possible.

Also, it is a negative mentality. I've been working at a dietitian's center for 3 years.

I had the same problem. Fun fact: protein stunts your appetite. I started having a protein shake for breakfast every morning and now I very rarely get the urge to snack.

Granted this might not work for everyone, but it's what helped me.

The first statement is a matter of relativity.
The second statement prompts me to confess that I am a certified personal trainer from an internationally accredited sports medicine academy.

I like to chew gum to curb snacking, sometimes I'm just craving something munch (I usually munch on chips or something similar).

If you need something actual to eat, I like to snack on carrots. But I'm weird and like raw carrots...

For me, like the other person said "fruits" I eat a lot of watermelon as it's low calorie and is mainly made up of water; when I first started eating "clean" and exercising I would crave sugar/salt/starch like a beast! but I just stuck to it and found alternatives and that was fruits and its good to just grab a peeled orange and blend it in a little bit of water and ice to make it a smoothie and use stevia as sweetener which curbs appetite a bit too ^__^

Snack on things that are no cal or low cal. Herbal tea sweetened with Stevia, miso soup, a lettuce salad (just lettuce0, with a tiny bit of dressing to dip in on the side. Tomato soup with a water base is good too, season it with basil and a little salt and pepper. A 1/2 c. of cooked oatmeal with stevia and cinnamon works wonders on filling you up (cinnamon is also an appetite suppressant, but don't overdo it since, too much of it tastes blah).
Soooo, those may not sound too tasty, but I like them a lot, and they have helped with the snacking alot.

I like those small 100 calorie packs. They are a good low calorie snack. I also like apples, they seem to give me a energy boost, gala are my favorite. And drink lots of water, no sodas.

Yes, apples and water are good! If you eat an apple and drink water before your actual meal (about 15 mins before) you won't be that hungry ^^
I also like milk, it has a similar effect as apples and mineral water, but much stronger. Also, if you're excercising a lot, it's good to eat bananas to prevent muscle cramps.
I'd also recommend to eat less meat (especially red meat) and more fish. Fish is super-healthy!

I'm the same way. When I get home from work at 4 pm, I'm starving and could probably eat an entire meal before dinner. What I learned is to eat something salty and then something sweet. Dessert has a purpose (it convinces your body that eating time is over) so eat something healthy and salty, and then something healthy and sweet. I prefer the miniature candy bars b/c in my opinion dessert should be anything but healthy so my brain is totally telling me "Okay, you had your chocolate now leave the kitchen". Popsicles are good too b/c they take time to eat and by the time your done your tired of eating.
It's something that works for me, but I'm not saying it'll work for you. Worth a shot, though. Good luck!
