I would say I have not eliminated it, but drastically reduced my intake. I gave up soda and don't really drink juice. It's all water for me. I used to always eat candy or chocolate. I don't really anymore. My only sugar is my cereal I love my morning cereal with almond milk. I still crave sweets. Walked into Walgreens today and told the clerk "man those gummy worms smell so good!" he replied with "u can smell that? I don't smell anything." I still eat fruit too, some days.
