I am odd I refuse to eat normal sized meals ( just rarely). I test more than 3 times a day and I eat in little snack sizes all day long.. trickling in the food. So I find the two hour mark not realistic for me as it is usually when I am eating again
I never eat more than 30 grams of carbs at once 3 -4 times a day depending on exercise.. often just a veggie or some pure protein snacks without carbs. This works brilliantly for keeping my BS between 80-140... averaging around 110. I am not on meds and losing weight effortlessly and have high energy like I am 20 years younger with this method. I never leave the house without some Kashi crackers, cheese, liquid protein or a Luna bar. Its my version of the South Beach diet. Right now I am baking Brussel sprouts with fresh garlic and olive oil to snack on throughout tonight and tomorrow
mixed them in with the protein and carbs and I am good to go! My cravings for carbs vanished!
the first BAD food or drink I discovered with my beloved little meter was caffeine..wow nothing spikes me like that stuff so I gave it up week one.. but now that I am no longer having blood sugar spikes because of the new eating I don't feel the need for the red bull pick me up so it worked out great for me.
