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.

There are ways: For most (not all) people, the more aerobically fit you are, the better job your brain does of telling you what you really do and do not need to be eating. 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.

Ironically, by : Decreasing your intake of junk food. Try to gradually eliminate processed sugar & artificial sweeteners, including juices, so-called fitness drinks & soda. Increase your intake of vegetables (lots of different colors) & low fat proteins. Use fresh fruit for desserts. Also limit breads. Book 'fat chance' by dr lustig has good ideas.
