Willpower: Hi. I know it's hard in our society, but many of us are successful in living a healthy lifestyle. I suggest you don't buy junk food, don't keep any in your house, find healthy alternatives and DO keep them in your house, don't eat out much (almost all that food is junk), and exercise regularly. To your healthier lifestyle!

Slowly reduce while:: It's common to become addicted to sugar and other unhealthy foods. It might be best to slowly reduce while emphasizing eating healthier foods,esp. vegetables & fruits. If you eat more healthy foods you'll eat less unhealthy ones. It's best to eat sweets after a balanced meal rather than on an empty stomach. Try using fruit to satisfy your sweet tooth.

One option: Clear your home and/or work environment of the junk food. Hide your cash/cards if tempted to drive thru. There are reasons that these foods are craved. If you work with a nutritionist to create a healthy meal plan and stick to it with good fats like nuts, avocado, coconut oil, and healthy proteins and lots of vegetables with some small healthy fruits, you might just lose the temptation.

Remove it: Remove it from the house, dont have it readily available. You would have to go out and get it. Make it a chore to get. It shouldnt be an easy task.

Will power: You need to have netter food available. Do not go hungry just make better choices. Binge on carrots, binge on apples! best not to buy any junk food and best not to bring it into your home especially if you feel "weak" about eating it. Hang out with healthy people as social networks reinforce behavior, hopefully healthy behavior.
