How Do You Cope With People Eating Sweet Treats In Front Of You?

I have just drastically reduced my consumption of sugary snacks due to starting on insulin. I honestly expected my partner would stop eating them in front of me but he hasnt.

I agree. Cut the carbs and you can have sweets in moderation but not every day.

Yes, Diabetes Nurse at the hospital classes taught us 22 years ago that a BTS (bed time snack) was just about necessary for T2on oral meds. It was recommended to have a teaspoon of peanut butter on a graham cracker because the protein (peanut butter) delivers the insulin in your body more efficiently. The graham crack (only one) is a bonus.

You need to find what’s right for you!! Some people do low carb etc. Everything in moderation. Like I’ve said before, some foods will rise your blood sugars, either avoid or smaller quantities of it
