I had a miserable time cutting out Sugar also but everyone convinced me it is totally necessary to cure a candida infection. I found a book that really helped me cut it out. It is called The Sugar Addict's Total Recovery Program by Kathleen DeMaisons. And if you really want to scare yourself with a depection of the horrors of Sugar read William Dufty's Sugar Blues. Here is a link to read more about the Sugar Addict's book. Hope it helps you as it did me.
