Change environment: Food does not always have to be in your environment so consider ways you can avoid being tempted. That obviously might be challenging if you work in a food service business so if that is part of this, consider seeing a psychologist about ways to manage temptations. Make social commitments and conscious choices about eating healthy food at meals and specific snacks not just unhealthy choices.

Willpower: Hi. I sympathize, but you have to start living a healthy lifestyle if you don't want your unhealthy lifestyle to start catching up with you. It takes commitment, but but many of us have made the choice to live a healthy lifestyle, and love it. Eat healthy foods and exercise regularly FOR LIFE. Don't smoke. It's worth it. Good luck!
