Keep something healthy and convenient at the front of your fridge so you can grab it quickly when you need something NOW. Whether you pre-package your own portions or use grocery store convenience foods like carrot snack packs, it will make a huge difference in what you eat if it's something easy for you to grab.
You can pre-portion salad into bowls, pre-cut vegetables for snacking, and pre-portion nuts so you don't overdo it.
Yesterday for Breakfast, I had a bowl of Cereal (Special K with Red Berries) and 1% milk. Lunch = I made a pot of Chicken Veggie Soup. I had 2 cups with a slice of sour dough bread. Dinner = Chicken Crouquettes, green beans and tomato salad. Snack = popcorn. Pre dinner was 99. This am FBS = 122 I'm think I'm starting to get control....
Include "good" carbs in all your meals and snacks, esp. breakfast & bedtime snack. With portion control, eating good carbs in the morning helps give you time-released energy boosts you need after fasting overnight. Including good carbs & protein in bedtime snacks help regulate your BG overnight.
