First of all you must know that sugar is widely spread in our products. If you want to stop craving for sugar you need to find a replacement, like fruits vegetables or even seeds

The obvious answer on how to get off sugar would be to stop eating it.

Could you clarify what you mean by sugar? Did you eat candy or did you eat fruit?

I got lean eating a lot of fruit. I don't think giving up 'sugar' is some sort of health panacea, and in my experience, did more harm than good.

Bellyfat is associated with high cortisol (1) and low blood sugar is a basic signal for the body to raise adrenal hormones (2)(3)(4). A low calorie, low sugar diet also lowers the metabolism, while a low calorie, high sugar diet normalizes it (5). 

I prefer to get my sugar from fruit (sucrose), but potatoes are also a good source (glucose).

Sugar is more addictive than cocaine so it's no surprise you're having trouble.  I quench my sugar cravings with fruit such as blueberries and mangoes.  

The more sugar you eat the worse the cravings are, it's a vicious cycle.

I've been stuffing my face with candy the past week because christmas so i'm about to go through withdrawal again. =/
