My husband was diagnosed with diabetes a little more than a year ago. We’ve learned a lot in that time, but the biggest help for us is simply knowing one thing.
If it’s in the house, we’ll eat it.
Willpower is great, but it’s largely a myth as well! Try resisting those cookies or ice cream after a stressful day. Best of luck with that.
We’ve learned the hard way, if we don’t want to eat sugar- and carb-laden foods, then they had better not be anywhere in the house. Yes, that means the non-diabetics in the house have to learn to eat that way as well.
