For me, its all about the total carb count. Sometimes I find that "sugar free" isnt always a better choice. Sugar free items can still be quite high in total carb count. I eat yogurt frequently and it is not sugar free...but runs about 15g of carbs per serving. Watch your labels and compare to make the best choices for yourself.To preface my question, I am not diabetic and hope to avoid it. Type 2 runs in my family, and I was previously a gestational diabetic. (Three years ago.) I am 40, and as of December, I'm currently not even pre-diabetic. So despite all my weaknesses (I have an awful sweet tooth), I'd like to try to do what I can to avoid Type 2 for as long as possible if not forever. (Wish me luck.)
I recently "discovered" Greek yogurt. It's fat free but not sugar free, and yet the carb counts are relatively "in range" as a gestational diabetic snack.
If foods aren't sugar free but they still are low carb, is this good?
