+1 for agave nectar / syrup
I've been getting mine at Trader Joe's ... in some stores it's pretty pricey. Start off with what you can, then, as the poster above said, you will find that you make additional changes as you go. I've been cutting down on sugar (until today -aaaargh!!), cutting out processed sweets and the 'white stuff' and now find that the things I used to eat taste too sweet (course it didn't stop me this morning). Having tested that this morning with a gargantuan muffin, I can say that I will remember the incredible over-sweetness that is scores of grams of white sugar for next time and pass up the pastries at work with no second thought.
