Now you tell me this.
For the record: black raspberry wine coolers every day and 1 meal every 3 days makes one look like a skin covered skeleton. It also messes with your hunger sensors.

It took 15 years to put the weight back on from that stupid idea.

I am always mindful of that. It is what determines what I will eat. Fortunately I have reached the point that I am no longer on the pills and control it strictly by diet. So I have to keep it in mind always. If I ever go back to where I was when I was first diagnosed, I will have to go on the needle. I am able to keep my A1c around the low 6's. 6.4 is my average number. I would be happy if I could get it down to the upper 5's. 5.7, 5.9 would make me very happy. Fortunately I am not a sweet eater. Never have been. So that makes it much easier to use my common sense when I choose what to eat. And it makes it so much easier to refuse something that is offered to me. "No thank you. I am diabetic." That ends it right there.

Unless I get the "....but my uncle is diabetic and he eats cakes, cookies, etc. whatever."

"I am not your uncle.!"

What he "invented" sounds a little like this stuff.

So true. I am also very mindful to keep myself dehydrated. After a couple of trips to the hospital in an ambulance, and the condition of my skin, I now keep water next to my computer and at my bedside. Along with my endless coffee cup.

Um, I hope you mean "hydrated", Addie. We don't want you to dry up and blow away now, do we?

Thank you. Good catch. That was meant to say "from becoming". Although I have been told to "go away" many times in my life.

I'd try it.

Wouldn't go out of my way to find it but if offered sure.

If I liked it I'd eat it again.

But I wouldn't give up other food because of it.

All things in moderation. Even wonder food.

Sure it might have all the nutrients I require but consuming nothing but that can't be good for you.

Variety is the spice of life and I'm a spicy lover.
