    do you have any medical reason to avoid sugar?

    if not, set your goals in MFP and eat what you want as long as it fits your calories

    That's easy. You eat the foods you love. Include some sweets if you must, so you don't feel deprived. Stay in a calorie deficit and lose weight.

    I was a gumdrop addict, ate them every night. On day one of mfp, I threw them out. Within two weeks of eating a pescatarian diet, my sugar cravings were gone. I haven't eaten a gumdrop since.

    Good luck.

    To reduce sugar I had to stop bringing sweets into the house. I'm not one who can eat one square and leave the rest alone.

    There was still the occasional dash to buy candy but now it's pretty rare. It took some time. If you HAVE to have something, buy 1 small package. Take tiny bites and make yourself chew a lot. Savor it. Also, don't grab for it when you are hungry. Eat something else first and get full.

    I'm not a "Sugar is evil" person. I was eating a ridiculous amount of candy almost daily and that needed to be reduced. I never enjoyed sweet drinks. I still eat plenty of carbs and get most sugars from fruit now.
