I was dieting pretty well earlier this year before stopping due to circumstances, but when I was dieting I seemed to have no problems with my BG and my A1C dropped to a 5.2. I want to diet again to lose more weight, but the thing is that recently, every time I try to eat less, my blood sugar drops multiple times a day and I'm forced to eat something sugary and high-calorie to raise it again. I tried cutting down on my meds but that only ended up making me feel awful due to high blood sugar. Even if I tweak my meds downwards the tiniest bit, I end up having an average BG of 200. So I'm not losing any weight because every other hour I'm eating candy and drinking juice to raise my blood sugar. Does anyone have any idea how to combat this?

      When I'm trying to get my numbers in line or just trying to drop a few pounds, I eat 6 times a day. 3 good, balanced meals with more vegetables (at least half my plate) than anything. I eat healthy snacks between each meal. Lots of fruits, veggies and nuts. Popcorn is one of my go to's in the evening. If you're a fruit and veggie lover like me, you're set! You can pretty much graze all day! Lol! You can find tons of ideas on Pintrest. Hope this was helpful!

        @crzy1 love this idea! I find myself so bored at home (just graduated HS, lol) and the urge to graze is strong. Def need more fruits in my life. Yum 😋
