No easy answer: You need to try to understand what may be driving your junk food cravings like certain stessors. Then try to minimize those "driving factors" and also create an action plan that distracts you away from food when you can't avoid those cravings.

If you are morbidly obese, please consider bariatric surgery if offered -- this also seems to work on the mind, and also normalizes the glucose intolerance of obesity for reasons we don't understand.
