I have no willpower with Dunkin Donuts so I try to avoid them at get togethers. I bet if they ever made a sugar free version it would taste yucky, hahaha! Seriously, they discontinued the only donut they make that didn’t make my sugars go through the roof, it was the plain cruller.
Here is my technique-I just ask myself honestly if I really, really want the sugary treat. Am I willing to deal with a high BG and then possibly a low from correcting the high? Usually the answer is no, I don’t really want that sugary treat that bad. Now in the next week or so my internship site is throwing me a going away party and they asked me if they should buy a sugar free cake rather than a regular one from the bakery. I told them DO NOT buy the sugar free cake, I promise I will have a small piece of the regular cake. Even though I know I will enjoy the cake and I will end up high from it, sometimes you gotta splurge So I pick and choose my battles so I don’t feel like I am doing without all the time. This has been the biggest help for me.
