oat meal is good for lowering your blood sugar. also peanuts, granola, cinnamon, would be good breakfast options. other than that I've heard lima beans, vinegar, grapefruits are good for that too..

I'm sure there's tons of them out there!

Cinnamon is very good for blood sugar control. I take the capsules because it's easier for me. Also, just in general count the number of carbs you are eating. Aim for no more than 30 -45 per meal; and 15 for snacks. The more "whole" and unprocessed your carbs are, the better. Exercise also helps with sugar control.

Are you diabetic?
Consume whatever foods you prefer, whenever you prefer to consume them, while ensuring nutrient sufficiency and meeting caloric goals.

Foods high in fiber will help. Also beans too are good. Rachel Ray has a great black bean recipe that is super easy to make. Below is a link to fajitas but the bean recipe is there too.

I have done low carb, and I get results, but I don't find the way of eating to be sustainable for me. I fall back to eating in a more typical way. Right now, I'm having gall bladder issues ...

Weight flucuation
It defies the laws of physics if you didn't put on additional clothing, food or water. Perhaps it's just that home scales aren't perfect... Or are you having water?

Calories and sodium
If you still want to have sodium, just raise your potassium intake. As you lose weight, your blood pressure will also reduce.

It may be worth trying to add/create your own recipe which gives you the option to then add to your food diary :)
