Satisfying a Sweet Tooth on a Diabetic Diet

Sometimes life doesn’t seem fair. You are known for your sweet tooth but since you have been diagnosed with diabetes you are afraid you can’t have sweets anymore. This isn’t completely true. It is true that if you previously indulged in a lot of sweets, you can no longer do that, but there are ways for you to satisfy your sweet tooth while still sticking to your diabetic diet.

Even though sugar isn’t the only reason blood sugar levels rise, the combination of a high- sugar food and carbohydrates are. There are many artificial sweeteners and sugar substitutes that are available either in sweets such as chocolate and hard candies, or by themselves.

One way to insert sweets into your diet is to substitute them for other carbohydrates in a meal. If you were planning to eat a tuna salad sandwich for lunch, instead of having the bread, try eating the tuna by itself and spend the saved carbohydrates on a cookie or two (depending on the sugar and calorie content). This can be done with many different ways, but should be done only occasionally and in moderation. Your metabolism really will function better on two pieces of whole wheat bread than on two chocolate chip cookies.

Your dietician is sure to have many ideas and suggestion about how to improve your diabetic diet. He or she may have suggestions on meals or snacks that you might not have considered to be sweet but can certainly satisfy your sweet tooth. As you adjust to your diabetic diet, you will begin to appreciate the naturally sweet foods, such as a juicy apple or a fresh orange.

Following a diabetic diet does not mean the end of enjoying food. You can even satisfy a sweet tooth on a diabetic diet. You just can't do as much or as often, but that will just make it that much more satisfying when you do.
