Default Cutting out sugar

This is so hard for me, but I have to do it. I eat way too much sugar -- mostly in the form of fruits. I have fooled myself into believing the sugar in fruit doesn't count. I eat way more fruits than veggies, and my favorite veggie is carrots, which are full of sugar.

Of course, aspartame and the other artificial sweeteners are deadly and Stevia is so expensive. I bought a Stevia plant, and I'm trying to multiply it so I can dry and use the leaves.

I'm determined to keep myself to one helping of fruit a day, probably an apple or berries in a smoothie. No refined sugar at all, not even in my coffee, although that means I'll have to give up my beloved Coffee Mate and replace it with half-and-half.

How do you fight sugar cravings?
