Does anyone every get tires of eating and planning meals. I know this sound crazy but i used to be a compulsive overeat and used to eat all the time and now that I have diabetes i am tired of having to plan to eat something to keep my BS up. I wish I could still eat like I used to and and when i wanted to. Right now I eat two meals a days and I know I should eat more but i am a compulsive overeater and a gracier when I eat so I have to watch out for that. Has anyone been in my place and can you give me some advice? Thanks Family!

YEP!! I finally gave up and use plating method. Ready to cook or nuke veggies are a big help, also ready to eat salad…

The only meals I plan are Christmas and Thanksgiving dinner. The rest of the time I grab whatever meat is in the freezer and put sides with it. I basically eat two maybe three meals a day depending on what I feel like eating. Most of the time, lunch is yogurt and some fruit or a 3 graham crackers.

Think about it doggie, if you were eating the way you use to eat the odds are you would have become a diabetic. Diabetes forced you and many of us here to eat healthier. I use to be a grazer but eventually that got on my nerves so I stopped doing it the day I looked in the fridge, the cookie jar and the candy dish and there was absolutely nothing there I wanted. I also used to be an over eater but it wasn't a compulsion. I can't eat until I am so full I can't move. I have eaten to that point and it was uncomfortable.

Plan to eat three meals a day of healthy foods and eat healthy snacks. I find that carrots or other raw crunchy veggies help because you get the crunch sensation you get from chips and cookies.
