Oh that's terrible! How is that treated? similarly to diabetes?

Yeah pretty much - need to eat low gi and whole foods as much as possible, and limit sugar, caffiene and unprocessed crap, and eat regularly to avoid reactive hypoglycemia, which I get a lot. I found out that dates have a gi of 103 (off the scale :eek:)

I find them so revolting I gag if I smell them.
No, that's tomatoes

Dates are alright, but not in large quantities

Bad luck StickyDate, can you have them now and again?

:rolleyes:

I'm not keen. I can eat them now without finding them TOO unpleasant, and if I was having a sugar craving and that was the only thing available it might be bearable, but otherwise, no thanks! oooh, unless they're in a sticky toffee pudding!

I can, but not lots, like I used to - I mainly have them when i get hypoglycemia, coz they raise blood sugar very quickly. Then I eat something low gi after

I like good dates. Some dates are really dry and chewy. Medjool dates and these other dates I picked up at the Middle Eastern store were really good.

Too cute, Tigerlily, too cute.:p
