Secrets I learned after 7 years without sugar

For the past seven years I have eaten no sugar. Sugar as in table sugar, sucrose, not sugars as in carbs. This includes all sweets obviously, including honey, agave syrup, but also all non-sweets foodstuff or dishes with sugar. No sugar-laden bread, sauce, topping, ribs, etc.
