You and the others are so disciplined! I think I'm finding that almonds raise my BG too. When I eat them in the evening, my BG is higher in the morning than the evening before. I'm going to stop eating them in the evening and stick with pecans. I try not to eat anything past 9. Is that a good time or should I stop sooner?

I think most of the eating times and effects are quite variable for everyone. YMMV, your mileage may vary. What works or doesn't work for me doesn't mean it will or won't work for you. You just have to try something to see if it is a success or a failure and maybe try and test again to see if the results are repeatable. It would be super nice if I could just do what others do successfully and avoid what fails for them, but then where would the fun be if I didn't test to see if I could have a slice or two of this or an ounce or two of that.
