I would like to thank Guy Incognito, author of Bonjangles, (Thanks Guy!!), for today's guest comic and Myth #3: people with diabetes should never eat sugar.

The truth is, people with diabetes can eat sugar. Whether it is to treat a low blood glucose level or just to have a couple of cookies now and then, sugar is not forbidden. The key to good blood glucose control is proper carbohydrate counting and correct portion sizes. The key to sticking to a healthy diet and keeping your sanity is to remember that saying you "can't" have something only makes you want it more. Saying you can have one cookie, or one piece of chocolate, today means later you won't eat a whole cake in three weeks.

This tip is also great for people who are trying to lose weight.
