I STRONGLY believe that both flour and sugar are poison. I'm gluten-sensitive and for the first time in years, I severely restricted the flour products I consumed last week and, I swear, I feel better now than I have felt in months!!! I'm not exhausted and cloudy like I usually am, my skin is clearing and I'm actually looking forward to going to my cycling class this evening, which I can't even tell you the last time I looked forward to exercising.
Yes, cutting sugar and flour completely from your diet will be one of the hardest things you will ever have to do, but, if you can, I say go for it. Or, at the very least, restrict your consumption of it. It will change you, both physically and mentally.
