Question: My family gets together a lot for various occasions, and many carbs enter the room in terms of snacks, desserts, and special drinks. It's always very yummy and my family says I should feel free to say no to the food, because of my diabetes. How can I get them to support instead of tempt me?
Answer: This is the number one question I receive from my clients. Social gatherings can be a challenging time to stick to your eating plan, but creating an environment of support can make all the difference in maintaining your health (and blood glucose).
