Is anyone else having trouble not giving into cravings that was diagnosted with gestational diabetes? I'm not overweight or on insuline but I've been craving chocolate big time!! I tried all the low carb snacks but it's not the same. Any advice?

There are lots of sugar free cakes you can buy, as long as you watch the carbs in them they should be fine. Also they have Splenda now for baking this taste like sugar to me, like I said just have to be careful about serving size because of the carbs. in flour.

I have GD too and i totally understand your chocolate cravings. I also am not overweight or on insulin. Some things i find tolerable are Edys Sugar Free fudge tracks ice cream, sugar free pudding, and Russell Stover pecan turtles. Of course they dont replace the "real" thing but i HATE sugar subst_tues and these are what i found to taste the best to satisfy the sweet tooth. Just remember, at least GD is temporary. i tell my husb to have chocolate waiting in the hosp for me or he will not even go near the new baby..........lol
