And unless money becomes no issue, i cannot eat six times a day because of my work. Stopping to eat like that will cause me to miss traffic. But those who have to eat like that, it is so they don't get low blood sugar. That doesn't happen with type ll.
I dont want to push to hard...but most jobs will allow you to eat 6 meals a day if you WANT to. Its more like snacking throughout the day...not full blow meals.
Breakfast: 1 cup oatmeal w/ milk
10AM: Protein bar or small sandwich or a serving of trail mix
Lunch: Sandwich (no chips)...basically what you eat now but a bit smaller portion
3PM: small snack...maybe a small apple and some nuts, snack pack, crackers w/ cheese, yogurt + small fruit, etc.
Dinner: normal dinner but in smaller portions
9PM: low carb snack... cheese, protein shake or bar, vegetables
So two times during the workday you need to snack. I dont know what kind of job you work...possibly you cant. I do know many jobs would allow you to take a 10 min break to chow down something for medical reasons. Many jobs allow cigarette breaks...just use those if possible. Most endocrinologists I have talked with say it's best to keep bloodsugars under 110. My girlfriends endocrinologists sets her goal to under 100. Same with her sisters endocrinologist.
