Try lumping your carbs strictly after workouts. If you don't lift heavy that day, simply eat low carbohydrate. Cut the starch, maybe limit yourself to a piece or two of fruit solely in the evening if you feel the need for something sweet.

I find if I'm sedentary, I just want meat, dairy, vegetables and occasional fruit. You may find yourself truly not wanting all this starch if you really listen to yourself.
Of course, you and I are different and naturally have different cravings, but try and pay more attention to what your body wants. It's usually good at telling you when it wants fat or sugar. It's just a pain translating them. If you want ice cream, what does it mean? Fat, sugar or protein? It's a good source of all three. I still haven't figured that one out, but I did learn that craving pasta = potatoes!
