Thankfully I don't need willpower, because I eat as much as I want of the foods that make me feel good. And once in a rare while, a little fake food is just a drop in the bucket, not worthy of guilt or remembrance.
For the record, I'm a born glutton, raised in malnourished poverty and given to eating ALL of anything I see in sight. My cravings only dulled slightly with the cessation of sugary things - it was the replenishment of total nutrition by way of micronutrient intake that finally quelled the beast. Once I got brave enough to begin eating liver, my world changed. At first, I ate two pounds a week. Then, after a few months of that something got topped off, maybe my vitamin A reserves or B12, and I suddenly cut back to one pound a week, which I've maintained for years now with great results. I only eat once a day most of the time, in a three or four hour window where I get around 2000 calories in general. This lets me feel that familiar fullness I'm so attached to, and then lends to a short period of "fasting" toward the next day. It's perfect.

Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.
