Exercise Curbs Your Appetite

It's really true -- exercise, even just walking for 1/2 hour, really curbs your appetite. I get hungriest when I'm just sitting on my kazoo at night, watching tv. But when I got back from my walk this evening, I wasn't hungry at all. And exercise is so good for getting your BG down! emoticon

Split up portions / Snack drawer

I am not a diabetic, but I have a daughter whom is. (Type1) Use portion control by having things already divied out. Help stop temptation by having to get into the pantry to get snacks / make a designated drawer.

Working through Denial

Knowing that you have diabetes is one thing, but accepting and working through the times of denial is another. It is very important that you talk with your physician as well as your dietitian and learn all about diabetes and how it will affect you.

Rewarding yourself for good control.

In order to get myself to take a blood sugar before every meal I had to make a game out of it. I would give myself a reward, like planning for dessert if I was in really good control (less than 200) and if too high I would switch my favorite things (fruit) on the plate with a glass of water.

Keeping a Close Eye on Your Blood Glucose Level

Make sure that you test your blood glucose levels at least twice a day and preferably more. Just because it is low at one point during the day doesn't mean it will stay that way, especially if you have eaten several fruits.
