What are you replacing the junk food with? Even the most healthy of food will make you gain if you eat to much of it. I found, in my journey, when I cut junk food, I increased carbs, usually breads, peanut butter etc, anything for that SWEET taste. I started going a bit over with the brown sugar on sweet potatoes etc. Maybe watch that closly for a week, see if its coming from a traditionally healthy choice.

It's great that you gave up junk food! Good for you! But without keeping track of what you're eating, you don't really know whether you're overeating or not. Maybe you should try that--keep a journal of everything you eat for a few days--what it is and how much (ounces, cups, whatever). Then go back and put in the calories. There are lots of calorie counter books you can get. Or you could use one of the on-line trackers. Anyway, then you could see how much you are eating.

Let us know what you find out!
