  • Great info, thanks.
  • IA snack chart is a great idea, but that particular snack chart? Juice & Juice bars = sugar spikes followed by sugar crashes!
    What I do is make my own snack chart, and list those items that are healthy, tasty, easy to grab, and easy on the spikes and drops.

    I USE 3 MEALS, 2 SNACKS AND IT REALLY WORKS FOR ME.
  • Very good information.
  • Good article. I use the 2-3 meals and 2 snacks, needing one at bedtime. Thanks.
  • I eat lots of fruits and veggies, 3 meals a day and 2 snacks. I eat breakfast late and have lunch about 1 p.m. I eat dinner around 7 p.m. I need the snack. I exercise right after dinner and before I go to bed my sugars are low so I have an apple or banana with peanut butter or an apple with string cheese. Sometimes I eat some crackers with peanut butter and almond milk. I don't get enough calcium so I need the milk. It's working great for me and has for the last 8 1/2 years.
  • I like charts and tables in articles.
  • TOMATOCAFEGAL
    Because of my work schedule I have been using the 2 snacke with 3 meals formula. Early Breakfast, snack, Lunch is not until after 1, stay busy, Dinner with family so by 6:30, then snack in evening. has been working for me.
  • Snacks have always been a big part of my diet ever since I can remember. Has you get older, your dietary needs to change and yes, that includes snacking. Smaller portions have made a difference and I eat more veggies now.
  • So many carbs! Yes, let's give people more of what is making them sick. How about some crackers?
  • I think the snack suggestions are awful. My husband is a diabetic and he definitely doesn't need all those carbs. Protein, good fats, vegetables, and some whole grains and some fruit it what his Dr told him to eat. Definitely cut down on carbs. They all turn to sugar in the end.
  • my blood sugar is actually love but I have a husband with diabetes and have to watch his
