Stress Because of Cravings

i have been addicted to desserts but since i have been diagnosed with diabetes i couldnt eat much :/ this lockdown is making me more depressed what should id o 🙁

  1. I also would love to know that if i use some supplement like this https://www.healthcarebusinesstoday.com/blood-boost-formula-reviews-natures-boost-healthy-blood-sugar-formula-examined/
    would it help me fight diabetes ? Please i want to eat all my sweet things again 🙁

    1. Jessicasweet, I hear you! Since staying at home, I have also been baking like crazy, and just spending a lot more time in my kitchen. Baking and cooking are very comforting for me. Luckily, there are many desserts that can be made sugar-free and made with healthier ingredients.

      I wrote an article on different flours you can use for baking, all of which are typically healthier and have a lower glycemic index compared to bleached white flour: https://type2diabetes.com/nutrition/best-type-flour/.

      Here are a few healthier dessert options:

      https://type2diabetes.com/recipes/flourless-chocolate-cake/
      https://type2diabetes.com/recipes/keto-vegan-friendly-cookie-dough/
      https://type2diabetes.com/recipes/cocoa-coconut-cookies/

      Sometimes when I find myself in the kitchen too much, it is a good idea to switch up the scenery. I will go on a hike, garden, walk around my neighborhood, do yoga, or do a workout. Doing something active and going outside definitely improves my mood. I hope that is helpful! Please keep us posted on how you're doing.
