this might explain why a sweet dessert does not affect my blood sugar levels
as much as a pasta dinner.  I can eat the sweets as long as it is along with
a good meal with no other breads or corn, then eat chocolate with no
problem.  Give me a big pasta dinner, which I dearly love, and I am out for
the count.  The sleepies take over and I am no good for 24 hours or more.
The same goes for breads, if I eat one or two pieces a day, I am fine, but
more and forget it.
