Sugar cravings won't magically go away after a diabetes diagnosis. However, simple everyday tweaks can help you painlessly reduce the amount of sugar in your diet.

Living well with diabetes means managing the amount of sugar you consume. But while too much sugar isn't good for anyone (whether you have diabetes or not), you don't have to give up the sweet stuff entirely. “Small portions are key,” says endocrinologist Tamara Hannon, MD, associate professor of pediatrics at the Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis. To make the most of what you can enjoy, first root out all the unnecessary sugar in your diet. These simple changes can help you cut back.

There are lots of "sugar free" options as well. I know a lot of the SF candy has sugar alcohol in it but a lot doesn't as well. Russell Stover makes some great sugar fee candies & treats.

For me, it was just about changing my way of thinking. My world is still as great as it was before & I still enjoy a lot! Just now do it in moderation and a little bit of change.

Good luck! "the world is your oyster" and that still applies with Diabetics.
