I have to second the low carb.
If you are addicted to alcohol, you don't drink alcohol. Sugar is put in most carbohydrate foods, to keep it preserved, and for taste. This is because they have removed the fat, and keep it on shelves longer.
By reducing carbs, you tend to be able to remove sugar from your diet with a little effort. Sugar is a cabohydrate. Go look at 2 ozs. of noodles, or a slice of bread. Both have 2 g of sugar.
Amazingly, when you eat what you are addicted to, you can't get over your addiction! Read up on Dr Atkins New Diet Revolution, and see if it sounds like you could benefit. After the first two weeks, you start adding back in foods slowly. You may only need to avoid processed foods which are loaded with salt, and sugar. Many carbs have no sugar, and you may be fine eating them.
