I'm with Hope on this one. Consider adding more protein to your meals (lowfat cheese, handful of almonds, greek yogurt are all good add-ins). If you plan to eat every 3 hours or so, it will keeps your levels at a more steady pace.

I keep tangerines around, when those days hit me (usually a day after a hard workout) where it seems I cant get enough to eat. I'll eat a tangerine 2 hrs after each meal, and there is enough natural sugar in it to keep my blood sugars up, but not too much that it causes problems. Its a low calorie snack and healthy too.

If you havent been to your dr. in awhile, consider getting your A1C checked; my endocrynologist group has a great nutrition team who have helped me tremendously!

Good luck,
