I know you are not going to give sugar up entirely, so here’s a tip. When you eat something sweet you get a rise in your blood sugar but if you eat something with vinegar like a pickle or a salad dressed with balsamic vinegar you can help balance that rise. If you are planning on having dessert,then that salad will help because although vinegar doesn’t block dietary sugars, it causes them to be absorbed more slowly.
