but to keep you full longer, you may want to eat hardboiled eggs and stuff yourself with veggies and fruits. Those should keep your hunger pangs at bay.

I agree that you need to see a doctor. The simple answer is a lot of whole grains. A baked sweet potato can be a hearty meal with some toppings. Bananas are more filling than most fruit, and you can find banana chips that are good as well. But really, have some blood work done. If your diet, is, in fact, mostly protein with junk food in between, if you don't have diabetes now, you're looking it in the fact sooner or later. A lot of people think that because they are thin and active they are exempt from health problems. Have a look at it, then reevaluate your eating lifestyle.

While I don't have diabetes, I DO have hypoglycemic attacks from time to time. I first got them during my 2nd pregnancy, &, have suffered them since. Used to be, - I began getting the anaplactic(sp?) shock symptoms, but, I didn't recognize what was happening to me early on. Now, thankfuly, I can detect very early-on whats happening to me, so, I don't quite suffer the consequences, but,...thats knowledge for ya'.
I'm totally voting w/the rest of the previous posters - SEE YOUR DR.!! Hindsight is 20/20. If you ARE diabetic, well, not knowing for sure, &, eating various foods simply could be seriously dangerous to your health!! Nothing to "play around with" here.
When MY blood sugar is too low, I first off begin to get hot. Like REALLY REALLY HOT...almost like a part of me is on fire even (ps, I'm always cold), next, I begin to feel very light-headed...it's kinda slow at first, but, rapidly my head will go into a "confused" state of mind. Literally, things just begin to get "fuzzy" to me, like I am on the outside looking in. When I was younger & got to this state, I just mostly remember insanely craving sugar. Once, I even went to a store, &, like a crazy person, ripped open a couple of bags of candy on the candy aisle, & shamelessly stuffed junk into my mouth - I couldn't help it, & literally throwing $$$ onto the counter & leaving to sit outside of the store gobbling gummi bears like a vampire waiting for my brain to work again. For the life of me, I truly cannot even remember how I managed to drive to the convenience store in the first place - thats how much my mind was "lost". NO FUN!
I would be very interested to see what your blood panel results would be as far as diabetes is concerned. I'm NOT saying that you DO have diabetes, but, just that from your OP, I would say that you have some suspecting symptoms.

As far as a light, crunchy snack, how about air popped popcorn? Just season with a bit of sea salt :) Very tasty and light.

sarah, how do you get the salt to stick to air popped?

i've tried the very fine salt that supposed to be used on popcorn, but it just goes to the bottom of the bowl.

i was thinking of making a super saturated salt and water mixture and misting it on.


getting back to the topic: our latest healthy snack is sarah lee breadsticks and different flavours of hummus.

we like the roasted red pepper, hot pepper, and artichoke hummuses. (is that really the plural of hummus? hummi? hummae? lol)

I use butter to stick the salt to my air popped corn.

I find some always sticks...not a lot, but enough to give flavor.
Of course butter/margarine is an option lol.

I mist olive oil on my air-popped popcorn. I also dump the popcorn in a paper bag with about 1/2 tsp salt if I want "salty" and shake it up. If I don't want salty, I put pepper in the bag...or cayenne pepper...or parsley flakes and parmesan cheese or oregano and cheese or chili powder...or if I'm in the mood for curry, curry powder...obviously, I have weird tastes when it comes to popcorn.

And, my FAVORITE snack is a hard-boiled egg. I LOVE protein and a hard-boiled egg staves off the hunger pains that hit mid-day. I'm very happy that the Harvard Egg Study showed that 1-2 eggs / day are NOT bad for you.

However, you probably should go see your doctor and get at least a blood chem and urine analysis done. Something is not right.

not weird at all, cws! i never thought of parmesan cheese, or other spices.

i'll try the bag and oil tricks, too, although i think i'll use grapeseed oil.

thanks.
