Top Five Ways To Feel Full And Eat Less

Sugar Alcohol
Sugar-free candy as well as as other products using the term "sugar-free" should be evaluated for total carbohydrate content.  Sugar alcohols, though listed by their weight content within the food as listed in the Nutrition Facts panel, are not metabolized (broken down and used for energy) the way true sugars are.  Because sugar alcohols are incompletely absorbed, the FDA allows the labeling and assignment of less energy per gram to these nutritive sweeteners. (Diabetes Diet and Nutrition)

It's important to recognize the symptoms that are unique to you so that you can treat it before it becomes serious. (Symptom Juvenile Diabetes, Type 1 Diabetes)
