I think once you have done the candida diet a couple times you will eventually get past your sweet cravings. Once you start to cheat and eat them and the candida comes back you will start to learn that you would rather feel better than eat the sweets. At least for me it took a couple times. You try to test the boundaries of what you can get away with. You need to find things that will satisfy the craving that are ok to eat, such as coconut and berries. It takes time to train your will power, but it gets stronger and to the point that the sweets start to look bad. Basically it usually takes being sick and tired of being sick and tired.
