Put something icky tasting on the carpet, like the before-mentioned Bitter Apple spray. You can get it at most pet stores. It works for deterring pets from chewing furniture as well...

I'd just like to add: Do NOT touch the carpet, then make food, or touch your face/mouth! The stuff is DISGUSTING!! And it will infiltrate anything. Wash your hands real well.
