Saying no to most other fresh donuts is pretty hard for me, though. I try to keep donuts at bay by saying things like, "Maybe later," and "Oh, all that are left are plain cake donuts? I'll wait until next time." That way, I can keep donuts to once a year, or at least I can try. (I DO try to do that with ice cream, but last year was rough. I think I must have indulged five or six times. Maybe more but I have blocked it from my memory.)
Anyway, If I am anywhere near a fresh pumpkin donut this fall, I will try to remember that it has about 360 calories and 40 grams of carbs. I will try to just say, "No, thank you."
