It most definitely is possible to get a body builder physique on junk food. Called the iifym (if it fits your macros) method.

One of the people I follow in the fitness industry though has started that they did wish they had focused a bit more on micronutrition.

IIFYM may very well work for some individuals, as my post said: "be aware of what you eat and what your body needs". And junk food can fulfil the needs of very active individuals. But be careful when adapting diets from individuals with high amount of physical activity to someone with a sedentary job. This gets even more relevant, if recreational lifting isn't possible, as in OP's case.
