Ok, I said it. We've all been thinking of them so why not just bring it out in the open?
I have a small solution that may help some of us. (But not the uncontrolled peeps.)
Admit it, it's the once-a-year thing that gets to us and makes it so hard to resist them...

So here's a little tip. Get yourself some psylium fiber (Metamucil or store brand) , sugar-free if possible, and keep it on hand. If you have a cookie problem (read: Snarf on a few cookies!) get out the psylium and a glass of water. Mix a heaping tablespoon into a glass of cool water and drink it down right away. Rinse the glass with more water and drink that, too.

Here's the deal. The fiber in psylium acts mechanically to slow down the carb absorption from your intestines. IT DOES NOT BLOCK THE CALORIES OR THE CARBS. It only slows down the peaks in your blood sugar so you don't go so high and you stay medium longer without the sugar crash.

Now, this is not permission to snarf cookies...nono Just a little help for you if you get into trouble.yeah
And the good news is that it helps with all kinds of carbs if you overindulge.

Merry Christmas all! (and Happy Holidays to those of you who don't do Christmas!)

LOL ... excellent, Jeannie! While I was only "bad" once so far during the holidays (4th grade class Christmas party) I am going to lay in a supply of Metamucil for any further indescretions!

I hope you are well and ENJOYED those cookies!!

You??? I didn't think YOU ate any! LOL.

Thanks for the sick day info again ... you know last week when my bs levels were higher than usual I BET it was due to having that horrid cold that's going around. They're coming back down now and I bet it's because I'm feeling so much better. When I get my labs done again in January I'm going to have to explain that one ...
