5% body fat? Are you sure. That is REALLY low. So low I don't know if the body could function like that. I have seen bodybuilders @ 12% & I thought that they were ridiculous. I would recheck your numbers.

There is one national grocery store chain I would look into & that is Whole Foods. If you don't have a good "health food" store in your area chances are you have one of them. The newer ones have a GREAT salad bar. ALL Organic & $7.99 per lb. I eat there once/twice per week.
If you are on the go, see if there is one of them where you are. You can get fried chicken that is at least free range organically fed non growth hormone. Also if there is stuff you already normally buy like milk & eggs at least try to buy it organic. That would be a start.
As I said sometimes eating poorly makes you crave the junk food. It can also be a sign of other problems like yeast infections, (Candida). And it can create situations where diabetes becomes a factor later & you don't want that. I have found that often people who are acidic initially don't like alkaline foods or healthier foods. Sometimes it is just a matter of will power. And if you read that book you might find that you are not eating the correct foods for your blood type.
I know lots of FIT people who are NOT healthy. Remember Jim Fix the running guru? Real fit. Died of a heart attack @ 55 or something. He wasn't healthy. FB players have a shorter life expectancy then the general populace. So it's really up to you in the end if you want to change what it is you are doing. You found out later in life that you wished you had!
