Giving up my favorite food is tough!

Giving up my favorite food is tough! Everyone says to treat yourself, is it OK to do that?

There are many perspectives to this question. Many physicians, nutritionists and diabetes educators suggest to treat yourself to avoid binging on high glycemic foods. Feedback tells me that most diabetics are upset when seeing their glucose spike too high after working hard to improve their glucose levels. Many realize that it keeps glucose levels higher for a day or two after. My question to you, “How do you feel after you have treated yourself? Is it worth it to you?”
