Tracy.... low carb diet is almost exactlly like Diabetic Diet since the carbs turn to sugar while digesting and that release of insulin is what holds on to the fat instead of burning it.

Thanks Julie...I'd like to see your recipe too.


Hey, when you are eating low-carb...do you still have desserts?

That's kinda what I was going to ask...


I'm trying to keep it as low-cal as possible...


Can I do this without the fat stuff...like just mash them with a bit of butter and seasonings?

My recipe doesn't have cream cheese or bacon (I used 2 tbsp of heavy cream), but this sounds really great, and I'll try it this way next time.
