I find if I have eaten out. I do not do desert but if I eat 10 almonds and a i/2 cup of milk I can get down n der 100. This has been going on for a while up and down. The almonds appear to lower it.
We all have to remember that we need to have consistent numbers to keep A1qc lower.

And the amazing thing is that once you eat a lot of fat in your diet you need very little fiber to stay regular. My fiber intake varies from 5-40 grams, depending on the day and how many veggies I eat and it does not cause any problems.

SWEETTISHA: Yes, our brains are amazingly 75% cholesterol/fat! So we NEED that in our diet -- not the carbs. Oh, we need SOME carbs (the complex ones, fiber) but glad you've made the turn-around. I have had to add more fat into my diet too and I too use coconut oil.

No sugar or salt cravings -- thank goodness!

I've just lost that desire which has been a habit for many years just by eating more fat and no wheat.. sounds strange but it works.. i can munch or have a drink but its not out of boredom or habitude anymoreso i dont even think on it anymore..
I've lost 10 kilo's in 4 weeks, not that that is what my plan was no!!!
I wanted and still want to get off my med's, so from research started high fat diet..
Since i live in holland i started drinking half fat milk as it wasnt possible to get full fat then and margarine and halvarine etc and the meat here has always been sold without the fat on it..So I wasnot eating fat foods for years..
When i became diabetic they gave me a high wheat diet as i only occasionally ate bread, and skimmed milk and anything and everything light sweeteners etc..
I started putting more weight on, no matter what i did, exercise, drink loads of water, eat so- called healthy etc etc..
I did a research and listened to alot of Dr and Scientists Naturapaths for a few months .. from them i learnt that fat is what is missing in our diet so I did a turnaround in a day.. bought real butter, and milk from healthfood store.. turkish full fat yogurt.. and my foster son had bought me meat with the bones and fat on from rotterdam..
So i started, with broth with the meat, fat, and bonesstraight away i felt different, then started cooking with coconut oil... it gets hot very quick so have to adjust timing but food tastes great..butter on my veges..no pasta no bread,no rice,..I thought i would be missing them but NO.... I dont miss them and i feel good and my brain works better aswell... occasionally i will have rice crackers but i do not exclude rice completely i know i will make it sometimes.. but its not a staple anymore...
I blend nuts in a green or fruit smoothie... i juice leafy greens a few times aweek, or add them straight to a smoothie..I'm surprised that i lost the weight and am still losing.. but its a plus and hopefully when i go next month for my 3 month check for BS I will be able to reduce my med's
But the big surprise to me was that i would go from 6pm till the morning without even feeling hungry or having a craving for something..Just like the research suggested.. so now i'm a firm believer and the man( dont remember he's name) that created the diet of less fat in the 70's which he suggested was giving people heart problems admitted a few years ago that he got it wrong.. he didnot test or experiment he just guessed that fat that was creating high cholesterol and heart desease.. Now they have discovered that fat is necessary and is not the culprit of high cholesterol...wheat is more the culprit... so sugars created from that causing all types of problems in our bodies function..
My DD still has a few problems with needing a night snack but she was on soya milk her whole life with milk intolerance and allergies.. which now has been discovered that soya milk is also not digested properly in our body.. so can create auto-immune desease so she has a long healing process to travel...but she also has benefits from this way of eating...

I love reading in bed or on the couch. If you are too tired to get into anything too difficult there is always the Reader's Digest for easy to process info and entertainment. Sometimes that is all I had the energy for when my daughter was little. Being in front of the Computer is sometimes unavoidable but usually interferes with my sleep.

I also have been a night snacker. It's hard to get out of, but I think I am getting a handle on it. right oafter supper at 5 pm I watch the news on t.v. Then I goo to spark and fill in my nutrition list and read a few articles, with a coffee. Then between 7 and 8 pm I take my blood sugar. If it is low I have a snack of fruit or something that satifiy's me and brings my b/s up enough to take the dog for a walk. I walk for about 20 minutes and then go back to the computer. I spend a lot of time on Face book playing games and that takes a lot of time where I can't leave to go get food. Maybe have a glass of milk and toast with peanut butter. at 10:30 I take my b/s again to make sure it is not too low for bedtime.. If it's lower I eat 1/2 a bowl of oat bran and take my insulin. It sustains me till morning. If I crochet in the evening I can't keep eating too. and you can do that watching tv. I think it's the TV that gets a person eating. my husband watches all the shows I don't like so took to the computer. Ir's amazing how fast time goes by on the computer. Facebook has endless games to play. Bingo solitare and you can earn points to play more games. Hope this helps. From Diana Also spark people has endless reading that really interesting !

After supper and he kitchen is cleared I get on to my Spark pages. I never think about snacking. I keep telling people I can do it, Take care You can do it if you decide to find a better outlet. Instead of TV try to use an exercise DVS for a while. HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Welcome!

For me the important thing is I am no where near the kitchen after 7 pm. (or fill in the blank -- whenever you're done with your supper and clean up!)

My rule for me that I started out with is no eating other than in then in the kitchen @ the table! Works pretty well.

I will read, listen to the radio, dance around, spark . . . whatever it takes to keep myself occupied. When it's nice out I take an after supper walk.
I know it's hard. It won't change over night either. One day-at-a-time.

I have been for the last 20 years a BAD bad evening snacker. I relax on the couch with a bag of salty something and with a glass or two (at least!) nibble and sip my way through the evening.

Sadly, I can easily consume a day's calories this way.

It has to stop, obviously. This is part of the reason I'm in this boat of trouble, but the thing is, that I don't know what else to do?

What do non evening munchers do until bed time? Sure, I could get a hobby, but end of the day fatigue makes me just want to do nothing. I'm hoping to gather some idea of what healthy people do between the time the kids are in bed, and bed themselves.

Thanks!
