Hi ramsfanray.

In what can only be a cruel twist of fate, I happen to be a Type I diabetic with an unstoppable sweet tooth. I've found that the best thing to do is eat sweets in moderation. You can't cut sugar from your life 100%, but there's a difference between eating a few bites of pie and eating the whole thing. :)

My doctors have never told me to abstain from eating sweets fully. So I still have my weak moments. You'll soon learn that different sugars have different effects on your body. For instance, Pasta is like the devil for me. But a few pieces of a chocolate bar seem to be OK.

You're just figuring it all right now. So be patient, and don't give yourself too hard of a time about a few sweets here and there.

Foolishly yours,
