Read the about that hunger post:
The sugar and food cravings are very normal; the trick is you don’t feed your cravings. It takes a lot of willpower, but after doing the diet for a few weeks this will completely go away. Then it will almost become anti-sugar and bad foods craving.
I am going to quit smoking shortly and I expect this to be way worse than the sugar cravings you are mentioning.
Also the sugar feeds the candida so if you experience symptoms, its because the candida is growing/expanding. Its like opening the windows to a house that is on fire!
