You can't just magically POOF! - change millions of years of human evolution and instinct merely because it suddenly 'looks bad' or 'clogs arteries.' We're just human animals, subject to powerful instinctive drives.
It may go against basic human instinct, but many people have been able to go contrary to the basic instincts for quite some time now. It may be difficult, but it is possible. Not to mention that the stuff we're clogging our arteries with these days is 100x more processed, unnatural, and loaded with chemicals than the stuff humans have been eating during the previous millions of years of human evolution. It's not only about limiting what you eat, but making sure that what you -do- eat is clean as opposed to junk.
