Sugar has been my downfall too. I have tried cold-turkey (works for a while, then a huge binge). I have tried having sugar in moderation (cravings get REALLY strong with this approach). I've been bingeing on sugar since I was about 18, and I'm 44 now. I've never been more than a few pounds overweight (honestly, I really don't know how, considering the number of calories I put away), but I HATE the way sugar makes me feel. I hate the loss of control I have when I eat sugar. Literally, gallons of ice cream, bags of candy, boxes of donuts, entire serving dishes of trifle or cookies. Yesterday I ate 1/2 a batch of pumpkin muffins while hiding in the pantry. How shameful is that??? I went Primal last July, but have been unable to maintain any weightloss due to sugar binges. In the last year I've lost and regained the same 10-15 pounds 4 times. Primal for a couple of months = weight loss, great energy, muscle gains, feel wonderful. Then a 2-4 week sugar binge = regain of weight, low energy, depression, anxiety. I KNOW what is right for my body, but the cycles of sugar bingeing are my downfall.
