    I think you are wise to listen to your body. The only way to find out is to have eaten a bit to see what happens. Remember that feeling and how you felt afterwards. Let us know.

    firstly: ALWAYS listen to your body!!!

2ndly: Ive always been hyperglycemic, and probably now a diabetic. When I go so many hours without eating or depending what I ate if it wasn't enough etc, my body shuts down, I feel dizzy, light headed, I feel like I have cinderblocks and cant move my legs. I agree with everything Cakemakermom had to say.

Stay healthy!

  My opinion is that this is more of a mind over body problem. You are use to eating a lot more each day so your mind is reacting by making you feel strange so you will eat. I have even read studies about this. This is of course that you have no medical problems that is not under control. Don't give in, it will pass. Make sure you are drinking lots of water so you don't get dehydrated, that can make you feel this way. Stop and drink water often on your walks.

If this feeling continues for days and you have not had a physical in the last 12 months, time to get one.

    Jason can you describe how you felt last night? Did you feel shakey or light headed or dizzy, were you having trouble focusing on things around you or having difficulty making decisions? When you ate did that make you feel better? Sometimes if you don't eat enough your blood sugar can start falling and it is not a fun feeling. If eating helped that was probably your problem. Just means you need to spread your snacks out so you are eating a protein and a carbohydrate about every 3 hrs. Let me know how you feel this morning. Pat

    Try to get in your Calorie range. If you hit your range and still feel hungry you may just be thirsty. Usually around that time hungar hits me sometimes. If drinking water doesn't work You can eat some celery or carrots. I sometimes eat almonds.

If you haven't seen your doctor or had recent blood work done you should.

    I find trying to stick to my ranges for the day keeps me steady. Sometimes if I didn't eat enough, I'll feel a little woozy. Is this your normal bedtime or do you still have a couple of hours? Occasionally I'll just go to bed if I'm tired, but since you said that you still need to eat more to get into your range, a healthy snack is probably going to help, some fruit and nuts might do it.

It's okay to be under your range occasionally, but you seem to be under it frequently. Try to aim for small meals throughout the day that will keep you going.

Have you been checked for diabetes? A sugar crash can make you feel icky, be sure to eat the right things to keep your blood sugars steady all day (this applies to everyone, not just diabetics).

Hopefully you figure out why you're feeling this way and that a little snack helps.
