I enjoy buying chocolate to treat my elderly mother. However, she is pre-diabetic. What is a good amount to buy for her per week?

    Instead of telling you what you want to know I am going to tell you what you need to hear:

    You and your entire family are pre-diabetic. 

    What needs to happen is to only eat whole foods. 

    100% chocolate?  She'd get full before it's too much. 

  • Probably none, but it’s all about the carbs. Read the package.

    How much are you giving her now?

    1 bar, 2 two pound bags of Kisses , 5 pounds or assorted chocolates? 

    More importantly, how much is she actually eating in a day to weeks time? All that you bring her? Or a couple of squares a day, from a 10 square bar or half a bag of the 2 pound bag of Kisses, twice a day? 

    And is this milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or reduced sugar, sugar free, and what else is she eating that is carbohydrate dense? 

    And why not ask her doctor?

    If you love her, stop buying chocolate.

    Buy her a bunch of fresh flowers or a bowl of fruit as a treat instead.

    See you can find some that is sugar free.  And just a few bars.
