I like certain things, and I don't want to change them.
This is just another of those "issues" for diabetics -- the degree to which we have to adapt, substitute, deny, etc. to manage this disease (by "deny" I mean deny ourselves things).
This issue came to mind for me reading the Stevia discussion. I've never tried the stuff. The discussion has got me interested, so I'm going to give it a shot. However...
I happen to like the taste of sugar. No, not the taste of "sweet", the taste of sugar. I have very little of it these days, and where I'd use granulated sugar, I use Equal. Took me a long time to get used to the taste of equal (and it will forever taste like the bastard stepchild to real sugar in my coffee), but it's "good enough".
Now, Stevia. Will it be better? Will I hate the difference? Don't know, but my stubbornness has kept me from trying Almond Milk and a lot of other substitutes for things because, well, I'm stubborn.
