Stick on a 2000 kcals diet. Vegs, proteins and the right amount of carbs (potatoes, Rice, pasta) per meal. Snack: fresh fruit.

Ps if u eat junk food ONCE a week there should B no problem

You gotta break the habit! Eating junk food is a habit that your mind and body rely on when you're feeling stressed or bored. It's not easy at first but gets easier with practice!
