I am 51 years old and have seldomly delved into sweets or junk food the past 27 years
Eating well is important but you still may need to be careful. I have always eaten a balanced diet with fruit, vegetables, and whole grains. But ironically eating whole grain wheat and barley turned out to be part of the problem. It wasn't until I began to eat a gluten-free diet that I noticed that my sensitivity to gluten was causing symptoms for me.
Not everyone is sensitive to gluten and dairy but it would not hurt to look at that possibility.
