For me it would have to be wheat. Wheat contributed to destroying my digestion for a couple years. I can eat rice with no problems. Sugar I can control and I never really had a sweet tooth. But wheat definitely takes the prize for me.

People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.
The research coming out about wheat consumption and arteriosclerosis and heart disease is concerning... I would say wheat since it's still labeled a "health" food, where common sense tells you too much sugar is bad.
Self-realization. I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"
sugar may not be the food you want to run to if you're trying to lose weight, but at least sugar comes in forms we can readily eat from the wild (fruit, honey, etc.). grains on the other hand require some sort of processing or preparation, generally contain gluten and more lectins, and you can just keep eating and eating it.
