Your body turns all foods into sugar once eaten

Don't add more sugar to your diet. If you get a sugar craving eat a sweet potato. A sweet potato is digested slowly to prevent cravings and sugar spikes. Eat the peel as it is good fiber. Steam, Bake, or microwave plain with no butter, just add cinnamon. Still Yummy!
