Holiday Temptation

I recently received this question from

Q:  I have diabetes and this time of year is the toughest for me.  It seems holiday treats/sweets are everywhere tempting me!  Is it ok to indulge a little?  If not, how can I build up enough will power to avoid holiday sweets?

The holiday season is a serious test of willpower for people with diabetes.  It really can seem like there are sweets around every corner at this time of year.  All you can do is try your best to avoid them, but remember that you are only human.  If you feel that you have to have a taste of your favorite holiday treat, don’t deprive yourself.  Just keep your servings small, the biggest hazard of holiday dinners is overeating.  Ask a friend or family member to split a cookie with you, or have half a slice of cake or pie instead of a whole one.  Do your best to make smart eating choices during this tempting time, but don’t be afraid to indulge just a little.
