    Pineapple

    I have a can of pineapple staring at me that I would LOVE to gobble down, but I'm afraid that it'll set the ball rolling for an insulin rollercoaster and cause me to overeat tonight. Or make me hungry the rest of the day. Not to mention it'll put me over my 50 carb goal. Thoughts?

    I would wait till temps are consistently above 75 degrees.

    forget the temperature junk. if pineapple will make you overeat, you should avoid it, but the carbs in a piece of pineapple are not a problem. canned pineapple tends to be packed in syrup, and in general fresh is a better bet.

    I get the stuff packed in 100% pineapple juice.

    I eat pineapple all the time. It has never made me binge. But I'm not you.

    What is more important? Staying under 50 carbs or enjoying a food that is allowed on the program? It's just pineapple- not rat poison. What if you eat it, it's good, you enjoy it and don't binge?

    Perhaps more useful- try cooking with the pineapple- I enjoy chicken or fish with a salsa of mango, tomatoe and avocado- that way you get fat and protein with it.

    Not sure what your take on dairy is, but you could also mix a little in some cottage cheese in effort to not eat the entire can.

    Open the can. Divide into small portions. Eat one or use in a recipe that will de-emphasize the sweetness. Freeze the rest in small sandwich bags for later use or in coconut pina-colada or fake Orange Julius smoothie.
