I just cannot believe what Corn Syrup and Sugar Free does to me. I was not able to loose weight or stop my sugars from spiking. I started SparkPeople (WHICH IS A GREAT TOOL!!!) but had to eat mostly protein and Veggies with little Fruit. A 1/2 slice of bread would cause a 50 point spike. Now with experimenting for 3 months by eliminating any product with Corn Syrup; eating Pasta, Pizza, a Real Sandwich, Fruit my sugars are stable for a Type II but I did gain 11 lbs with all the eating I did.
I used to kick myself for what I should have eaten or should have done. Spark People has changed me. Now I imagine every positive step I take towards being healthy as magical.
