I think I am like FierceHunter in that I have had problems overeating on sugar but eating clean has really helped me a lot and made it something I can usually eat with quite a bit of moderation. However, I disagree with her that because eating clean has helped, that it's the cure for everybody and that everyone should just learn to eat sugary things in moderation. That's stupid. Fruit, dried fruit and outright sugar are not required for a healthy diet so if there's a problem with it, then elimination is helpful. Just like for alcoholics, elimination is helpful.
