I noticed some chatter about Halloween coming up, and how it might be good to swear off candy, or to stick to the sugar free stuff.
Just a warning here that many "sugar free" candies have two problems:
1) they are engineered to be malabsorbed by your body. So your stomach gets upset by chemicals it can’t break down
2) they often contain as many, or nearly as many, grams of carbohydrate as other sweets. This means they still make your blood sugar spike.
Actually, my doctor says it's better to eat a small amount of real chocolate than to indulge in the stuff with the big "sugar-free, diabetic-friendly" marketing labels.
