. . . I find myself just wanting to eat tons of bad stuff.
I notice you say you have "plenty of room for dinner", which makes me think that you don't have your dinner planned--you wait for dinner time and see what sounds good. I think this may be the root of the problem. Since there are still eating choices to be made, you are still thinking about your food options. And if you have options, well, you have bad options . . . and those will work their way into your thoughts.
Try, instead, planning all your meals for the week down to the smallest detail on the weekend. Each night, eat what you planned to eat when you planned to eat it--and if it isn't exactly what you were in the mood for, so what? It's a food you like, since you planned it. This way, you never have to ask yourself "what do I feel like eating?", since our inner child often answers "cake!".
