Any other T1Ds struggle with over-eating, and have any tips? I think part of it was that my food was restricted/heavily monitored when I was very young, and I also HATE having low blood sugar, so I’m always avoiding that. I feel like sometimes when people casually offer snacks, I’ll eat even when I’m not that hungry, as if the food is going somewhere. I also stress eat more than I’d like to admit and don’t actually count carbs. It’s gotten to the point where I’ve definitely gained weight and I’m very self-conscious about it. Any ideas?

      I completely understand, I hate the lows for obvious reasons so I tend to get paranoid and treat before I even need to. The thing I think helps me is experimenting a bit with food. I like to try new stuff and see how it effects everything. It switches everything up a bit and sometimes I find things that aren't as bad as I thought with my bg. Those are the things I try to incorporate most when feeling extra snacky. I was very controlling at first with carbs but I find that it's all about finding how things effect you and incorporating the things that work best. I hope this helps but regardless I wish you luck ❤️
