Seems as though I heard that chocolate doesnt' raise your blood sugar as fast as potatoes... Partly because of the fats that make up chocolate. (All I remember is that we aren't supposed to carry a chocolate bar for low blood sugar attacks because the sugar is very slowly absorbed from chocolate...) The starches in potatoes (mmmm! I love 'em!) act like almost straight sugar because they absorb so quickly into the blood stream. I have this probem with rice as well. I'd try adding a load of vegetables to dinner and cut back a bit on the potatoes. You may even sprinkle your veggies with herbed olive oil (my favorite is garlic/tarragon that I make myself) in place of butter. The fats tend to make you feel more satisfied, enhance fat soluable vitamin absorption and smooth out the sugar high because they slow carb absorption. You might just be prediabetic... Can't hurt to be careful with the carbs. Hope this helps.
