    Oh no this thread should be banned :hungry:. People all over the country sitting drooling and creating puddles.
    Mine has grown to epic proportions and a mop is called for.
    A pile of the best chips you have ever eaten in your life from the chippie in Appledore in between two doorsteps of white bread covered in thick butter and followed by an entire lardy cake from the local bakers.
    I have never eaten a meal like that in my life but this thread is making me crave it. Thank goodness I don't drive or I might be out buying these goodies. ;)

    nahhhh, not for me....a huge bg spike stops me from enjoying something like that, which i suppose is a good thing as it keeps me from treating myself with anything unhealthy and keeps me enjoying low carb treats like these....

    9g of carbs each though so only an occasional treat :)

    The thread is about something you ate prior to getting diagnosed with diabetes and as much as all these low carb treats are great for people now, the OP is asking if you occasionally have a treat that you enjoyed before.

    http://www.diabetes.co.uk/forum/threads/a-little-of-what-you-fancy.67300/

    Do you ever let yourself indulge in something you really enjoyed before diabetes but have now given up. I do sometimes give myself a naughty treat but it is not very often anything sweet.... never did have much of a sweet tooth. Last week though it was something sweet in the form of caramel and sesame seed coated peanuts they were so yummy and I did have to be very firm with myself and not eat the whole bag I don't find eating something like that makes me want more though.
    Some people say they crave starchy carbs but I did not eat very much of those anyway well not bread pasta or rice but I do miss a jacket potato as I did eat a lot of those so I will have one of those occasionally

    I miss jacket spuds. Everything else I can substitute but not them. I haven't indulged yet but one day I will. Maybe I'll find that half a one is ok and more than enough. I've found chips are no way as delicious as I once thought. I can manage about 5 skin on wedges or 8 fried ones ok provided I peddle for about 15 minutes afterwards. Learning that rewards come at a price has been the one good thing to come out of diagnosis. Sometimes I'm willing to pay that price, be it a slightly higher BS than I like ( over 6.5) or more exercise. I've also found that what constitutes a little of what I fancy has changed so that I can actually have things I like more often, like dark chocolate or a small portion of almond flour topped crumble or a big crunchy homemade coleslaw.

    Yuk.... That would be my idea of hell. Before diagnosis and after. Though I'd have the skin bit off the top.

    Home made rice pudding! Gosh hadn't though of that for ages. My mum made it for me whenever I got sick when I was little, it was the only thing I'd eat.
    Has to have a good old skin on the top, made with proper full fat milk!
