    The most important part of treating yeast overgrowth is avoiding sugar and other sweets. You can also enjoy 1 or 2 pieces of fruit a day, but you should not consume concentrated sugars (fruit juice, jellies, pastry, etc.) Stay far away from soft drinks, which have 10-12 teaspoons of sugar in every 12 ounces.  (For those with CFS/FMS, be prepared to have associated symptoms flare for about a week when you cut sugar out of your diet.)
