Or maybe they're using foods as a crutch?

I also had to stop buying those items and asked my wife not to buy any of it, or if she did to hide it and leave no trace of it in the house. I don't need to see a donut box in the trashcan, take it outside and put it in the big trashcan. The same with candy wrappers.
If I need a sweets fix now I do some ricotta cheese with choc powder, maybe berries with heavy cream.
Binge eating or "using food as a crutch" indicates having a problem with food, aka an eating disorder.

Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.
