Hmm.... so apparently fat contains carbs, and fibre contains carbs. I thought by definition that fibre was not digestible?

I do actually agree that small amounts of sugar can be OK. I just don't think that most people know just how small an amount that is.

LOL! Thankfully I don't have quite as efficient a digestive system! You are famine resistant as long as there is paper in the house!

Before I came here I layed in all manner of "healthy" things I thought would help.

Including wholemeal pasta. Just checked that pack. Wow, a serving of 125gms only has 92 grams of carbs.

Oh well, as I remember, the stuff had a horrible crappy texture anyway...

Linda, are you referring to the stars along side your seniority & below your name, when you say "termite".

In that sense, we are all termites, baby ones right now.

We say she's a termite because I swear she'd have high blood sugar even if all she ate was wood like a termite!

Thanks Shanny. I must have missed that thread. But if you look at all the stars she has got, that icon also looks like a termite. Haha.

Ohhh, I'm on water pills for my hypertension. I wonder if I can get off them and not have a big rise in my bp and see if it helps my blood sugar.

I have to admit the question never occurred in my mind. Thanks so much for the link.
