    Wish I could get that into more normal process of thinking!

    If a person waits more than four hours to eat blood sugar drops, so snacking on the right foods will keep blood sugar balanced...Have a hard boiled egg, berries of all sorts, orange, apple, peach pear, plum...and I always have fruit,with 1 ounce of protein, like low fat cheese, yogurt, turkey, chicken as it blunts blood sugar rises. Yes I agree eat three meals...I eat three with 30 carbs and two snack with 15 for me.

    I have just started with Sparkpeople and I have found it quite interesting and informative. My problem with the 3 meals and 2 snacks a day is that I find it hard to fit all that eating into one day. I am currently unemployed and attending school. I try to keep up with the plan, but I forget and then I end up so hungry I find my self eating unhealthy. I have been trying to get my sugar levels down but it is hard. Any ideas to help me out?

    Track it! Seeing it in print, makes it real, and keeps your honest. emoticon

    I've recently added 2 snacks per day and this has helped me reduce my portion size at meals by 40 - 50% - overall I am now eating less and have more more post meal slump :)

    Works if you run a good daily schedule.
my problem is keeping the schedule.
