Moderators, feel free to move this as I couldn't find
a better spot. Do we have a health and nutrition section?


This was news to me as I have always been told to avoid
honey due to it's high sugar content!

I'm diabetic, and through some reading on diabetic sites I found that it's "better" for you, but not really "good" for you. It has a lower glycemic index than sugar is my understanding.

To look into it yourself, just do a search on glycemic index of foods. Honey should be listed, as well as sugar.

Well Beth, I'm still fortunate to control mine with diet and a few miles
on a stationary bike Cool  

I cheat from time to time and like to know what things are "better"
bad choices when I do cheat.

Besides everyone reacting differently to different foods, you need
to know what foods send your sugar off the charts, so you can avoid them at all costs.

For instance, I can't eat carrots, but a couple slices of pizza doesn't bother me.
I can eat strawberries, but not bananas. huh

My doctor told me, "its all about how fast it gets into your system".

I'm still learning. Only found out about being diabetic a year ago. Milk seems to be one that really gets me. I tried to keep mine under control by diet and exercise alone, but it didn't work. Then tried diet, exercise, and pills. Still no good. So I started on insulin shots less than a month ago. That's helping.
