Are low carb cookies even possible? An Austin, Texas company says Yes! They use all natural and delicious fiber to replace starch and sugar. Most diabetics need to eat a low carb diet and cookies are one of the first things to go. But Dave Fulton of Yes! To Cookies needed to find a no starch, no gluten, no sugar treat for his sweetheart, Cynthia who was a brittle Type I diabetic.

Cynthia has tried all the diets and all the artificial sweeteners in the world, yet still had trouble controlling her diabetes. Dave went on a mission of love. He found a way to bake without starch and sugar and still produce a satisfying and scrumptious cookie. He wanted an all-natural, delicious, hot-from-the-oven treat with ZERO impact on blood sugar spikes and crashes.

During the baking and testing of the Yes! To Cookies product, Dave and Cynthia found that they also lost quite a bit of weight! Following the advice of several physicians in the Austin area, they learned that Dr. Atkins was on the right track for diabetics. The rise in obesity is clearly in step with the rise in consumption of starches and sugars in our society.

Meanwhile, the cookie recipe got better and better.  Friends were soon wanting the cookies for themselves and the company was born. These cookies are available at several natural food stores in Austin, Corpus Christie, Dallas, San Antonio, Fort Worth, and even a couple of places in Florida. The list is growing.

If you are looking for a healthy way to eat low carb, manage diabetes, lose weight, and increase your health and fitness while still eating cookies, then head on over to Yes! To Cookies today. Make your sweetheart a really sweet gift basket for Valentine's day with these cookies and some Chocolates from Cocoa Pura. Throw in some Atkins Indulge bars and some flowers and your diabetic love will be thrilled!
