For me personally, I've learned that the less sugar I consume, the better I feel and the less I am inclined to overeat. "Sugar begets sugar."

I do eat fruit & don't worry about natural sugars in any foods. But specifically processed foods, be it candies/cakes/cookies or cereals or whatever - those foods make me want more-more-more and in my opinion it DOES LEAD to binge behavior & simple plain'ol over-eating. If I eat a candy bar, I want more candy. If I have a slice of cake with sugary frosting, I want more frosting.

If I stick mostly to fruits & veggies for my sugar needs, I eat less, I weigh less, I feel less gross. For me, sugar is just a drug. I have to really watch the intake, or suffer the consequences of binge-eating, weight gain, & general blah-ness.
