    Something I would like to clarify about potatoes; I do not eat them because I can get away with it without too much issue with my diabetes. I eat them because they are an instrument of my diabetic control. In 1989, upon the terrifying onset and prognosis of my type-1 diabetes, and discovering that foods effect are paramount, I made a vow to never again eat anything for recreational purposes. Never to eat anything just because it was tasty or enjoyable. From that point on, everything I eat is entirely for the purpose of blood-sugar control. That remains true today. It sounds depriving, but it is not. As it turns out I greatly enjoy all the foods that are used for blood-sugar control including potatoes, grains, fruits, and vegetables. Enjoyment is a side-effect. But it is a really good side-effect!
