Default Have any of you given up sugar?

Like completely given it up? Or maybe cut it out of excess. I for one learned a lot about places where sugar can be sneaky. Bread, for instance, surprised me! Obviously you'd find it in candy but I was quite surprised to find it almost all sauces and condiments as well as in other strange places I wouldn't have expected.

I have been toying with the idea of giving up sugar just to see if it effects my cravings and urges to overeat and binge.

I attempted a low carb diet but haven't yet gotten that down. I figure giving up sugar could be the first step in trying out a low carb diet, since sugar is a carb in itself and, when it's present, tends to boost the carb count in a food item by quite a bit.

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
