Drop the vice.
A good rule of thumb is, "Everything in moderation." While your health is optimized by eating only the best foods, an occasional treat will not harm a person in good health.
If you have a chronic illness or tend to get sick easily, you may be more strongly affected by an occasional splurge. You would be wise to keep treats to a minimum, and also to use a therapeutic modality like homeopathy, naturopathy, Chinese medicine, or herbal healing to strengthen your constitution. Many practitioners treat multiple food sensitivities as a cause of disease, but I believe they are actually a symptom of an underlying imbalance that can be corrected.
Finally, a word of caution about sugar sensitivity: Sugar works in some people's bodies in a similar way to narcotic drugs. If you experience agitation or strong cravings that are temporarily relieved by eating sweets, it is advisable to avoid them completely.
