I find that I really NEED protein for breakfast or forget it. I also try to eat every 3 hours (sometimes more often sometimes less).

OBIESMOM2 has the right idea. Glucose levels are so critical, as you alreadyknow.

Snack on fruits, veggies, yogurt...whatever you want that's healthy! Sometimes I do "backwards" days & I eat dinner for breakfast, and breakfast for dinner.... Why not? :)

It's time for a snack! Get some fruit. I eat my breakfast around 8 am & a snack around 10 -10:30 am.

try a no cal drink instead (water, coffee, tea, hot water w/lemon). Often we mistake thirst for hunger.

if you are indeed HUNGRY, have your mid morning snack

I have been trying to be more conscious of eating a good breakfast with fiber and protein to keep me full longer. For example today I had oatmeal which was made in the slow cooker so I had used steel cut oats with a topping of apple a little brown sugar and raisins and walnuts. I ate it around 8 o'clock and was actually quite full. It was a full cup and actually thought I wouldn't be able to finish the whole serving but I did. Now at only 10 I can feel the drop in my blood sugar. I am feeling sweaty, a little tremerous and shakey and feel hungry although I'm pretty sure I'm not. Feel like I need to eat something but want to stay away from the sugars. Any ideas??
