Giving up sugar for 30 days

I want to give up refined and added sugar for 30 days. Hopefully will keep me motivated knowing it doesn't have to be short term. Obviously hoping I can continue afterwards.

I've read stuff from all over and my general plan is no unnecessary sugars- chocolate, cake, biscuits etc. I will cut out white bread, but will keep some carbs like brown rice. I don't think it's realistic for else to ditch carbs altogether. Not now anyway. I'm also going to eat some fruit, but will be careful how much and try to stick to lower sugar ones.

Has anyone done this? Is there a definitive book/website/plan. My main challenge is finding lunches to take to work. I have access to a microwave.

I'd be interested in this too as dh & I are looking to cut out sugar and see if it helps a few minor health niggles (doing dry January too)

Good lunches are salads with a chicken breast to make them filling or home made soups. Something else I like are Spanish omelette with roasted veg & a little bit of chorizo with salad

Thanks. Is it generally better to ditch low fat/fat free products (yogurts, butter etc) if you're going sugar free or am I confusing it with low carb? Any suggestions for salad dressing without sugar?

I've started to read "sweet poison quit plan" by David Gillespie to help me. I think soups for lunch is a good way to go.

Olive oil for salad dressing?

Yes I'll be doing full fat of anything like yoghurt. Low fat yoghurt contain sugar or sugar substitutes.
