I've never been diabetic, but I was obese and my doctor said blood sugar levels on routine blood tests were in the range to be concerned. Like my weight, blood sugar levels have dropped significantly when I cut about 90 percent of high glycemic carbs out of my meal plans (bread, potatoes, fruit drinks, sugary desserts, pasta, pizza, rice, jelly and the like.) Funny thing, even losing 30 pounds since January I'm less often hungry than when I would eat things like bagels or oatmeal for breakfast and cookies or other heavy-carb snacks when I felt energy lag in the mid morning or mid afternoon. The other thing I ditched were "low fat" and "low cal" frozen meals with heavy reliance on pasta or rice. I eat higher calorie lunches, but I don't need snacks and I don't feel starved come supper time.
