Default The "ugh" between meals.

Today between breakfast and lunch I decided to try and cut back the amounts of snacks i'd eat for sustaining BG levels. Insted of the usual 1/3 of a raisin box every 90 minutes or so, I spaced a whole box out in small portions from 7am till 11am lunch.

Well my after breakfast reading at 6am was 99. I found that during the course of the morning I would feel that loss of energy, "The drop" so perodicly I took small amounts of raisins. Well it would pick up a little bit then the drop felt twice as bad. My body was feeling like a brick by 10am so I finished the box, drank water and had some more from another box. Before lunch my reading was 107.

Was I really burning through the sugar and carbs in the raisins that quickly?

Dan, Do you feel hungry all of the time as the BG's are not that bad at all. Also, Do you get active a lot during the day?
Do you exercise?
