Ok, let’s clear something up right from the start. Just because you’re a Diabetic it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the foods everybody else eats. You just need to be a little more selective that’s all.
There’s a common believe that being a Diabetic means you shouldn’t consume any sugar. It most cases this simply isn’t true and there’s no reason why you shouldn’t treat yourself every once and a while. Having said that, you should obviously seek medical advice regarding your diet and the severity of your Diabetes before drastically changing the foods you consume.
If you suffer with Type 2 Diabetes then fundamentally your weight and lifestyle play a huge part in being able to treat your condition. You’ve probably been told already to start shedding the pounds by following a low fat, low sugar diet and of course to exercise more regularly. Still, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the similar foods namely the desserts or snacks we all enjoy occasionally.
