Hello all my fellow Diabetics.
I am feeling very fustrated and hope maybe some of you might be able to help me. I am sure that all of you have gone through the obstacle course of changing your eating habits like we must. Well my problem is that I have worked so hard to make these changes and it never seems to be enough. I use to consume ALOT of sugar through Pepsi and chocolate( which I still crave severely), so I have switched to diet pepsi and tried many diabetic chocolates. I use splenda at home for cooking and coffee etc. Now my husband and family are at me to stop having these too, urg. I have given up so many things already. They say that aspartame and splenda are bad . How many of you use these for sweetners? And if you want sweets how can you get away from aspartame if all the companies use it as the main substitute? They have been trying to get me to use stevia but I find it horribly metalic tasting.
Any suggestions ? Please I feel like I am having to just give up everything I like and it never will be good enough someone will always tell me to give up more and more.
