Why Am I Still Hungry?
Do you think 3 or 4 ounces would be okay?

Why Am I Still Hungry?
I'm guessing that the cantaloupe, watermelon and grapes aren't the best for me? Yet they satisfy to some degree. I know that eating consistent amounts and consistent times would help but I still can't seem to get into a schedule. I think that I am doing pretty well with the carbs. The "salt monster" kicks in after dark and it is then that I crave something crunchy and salty. So far I am managing it but I don't like having that need. Unfortunately I cannot seem to digest nuts or anything dairy related. But beyond that, I am open for help. Thanks

Why Am I Still Hungry?

Thank you for the suggestions. I think that my glucose is becoming under control. My a1c had been 10.7 in June. Yesterday it was 6.0. My doctor was stunned. He didn't switch me off the meds nor do I feel confident enough to do so. I'm now having eggs twice per week. I don't digest nuts anymore. But I will look into seeds and at least given them a go. I'm grateful for the help.

Save any sort of dairy product to which I am allergic I am open to ideas. I have been shocked in the past few weeks how much sodium a lot of non-processed foods have. Fresh shrimp was the big surprise today. Ditto for fresh ground chicken and many fresh meats. In addition I am finding them harder and harder to digest. I am willing to experiment. Thanks

Very rough day yesterday. I don't know how to eat properly long term. I can only go in short spurts with this.
