I am so mad at myself I was recently diagnosed with Diabetes and I keep on craving sugar and am not sticking to my diet. I get so mad at myself but I just have to have sugar. I need a good talking too so that I behave myself. It's not fair!

no, it isn't fair, but life isn't fair. That is what my mother used to say anyway. I am a "sugar-holic" too but when I really crave a candy bar I just think about how awful I will feel when I see how high my BG has risen. Try Atkins bars, the choc. caramel mousse one and choc. coconut are really good and taste like the real thing. Just don't overindulge or you could have some intestinal distress (diarrhea…). Good luck and stay strong. I know it isn't easy.
