Right now, I am doing something I never wanted to do. I am eating Sugar Free Jello. The Jello Brand. It is recommended by Dr R Berstein in his plan.
I make up a batch and then I freeze it in 8 popcicle things. And eat those. I try to avoid them as they do cause some of an insulin spike but not nearly the same as normal sugar.
But Right now I have no choice. It helps me, so I am using it.
I started this to help me loose weight again because of the ravenous hunger I was having. Even though I was overeating, I was maintaining weight. So I started doing this to break my last 2 month stall, so I wouldn't overeat in calories.
I also make below for my birthday or holiday now
is awesome. But I will say eating it does set me up for wanting more of the cheesecake. Atleast it is low carb.
But the Chemical Pleasure that it does in my head/senses I winde up wanting to eat the whole thing. While I don't eat it in one sitting. I also, am aware, when I do make it to limit my meal time calories more cause I know how I will be with wanting a bigger slice.
I will say be careful, sugar free doesn't really mean sugar free in most instances. They are just using a different form of "sugar" still has just as many carbs as norm sugar.
For me I found testing my own blood sugar, sugar alcohol and normal sugar my body reacts just the same. No difference, So I tend to stay away from any processed desserts claiming sugar free (like bars, ice cream, cookies, jelly, syrups). My rule is if it lists carbs regardless of what type then it has carbs my body will react too...
Also what the powder form of various sugar free blends look at the carbs.
My philosophy is I don't trust anything that says Sugar Free. I look at the ingredients and the carb totals.. And invariably always winde up laughing and then getting pissed off that these people are allow to claim something as sugar free.
