What do you do when it's about an hour and a half till supper and your super hungry? I don't want to ruin my blood sugar of 90 or my appetite but I can't stand it. What do you guys all do?

Sometimes our bodies can confuse hunger with thirst. If you are not wanting to mess things up, maybe try drinking something before digging for a snack. If you are still hungry, what many below have offered are great suggestions. I like hummus with veggies.

A small protein snack will usually do it for me. A small piece of cheese, a boiled egg or a handful of nuts will usually do the trick.

I prefer almonds. Or a sargento snack cheese. Light n fit Greek yogurt is only 7 carbs per serving- it's a great desert with cinnamon on top!

Greek yogurt sprinkled with sunflower seeds or slivered almonds. I eat yogurts usually twice a day, in between meals. I try to eat something small every 2-3 hrs. I strength train so I usually eat protein and Greek yogurt is a great source of protein. Plus, protein has a good satiating effect also.

A few almonds works nicely too.

Greek yogurt and sunflower seeds sounds wonderful! I have to remember that for the next time I do the grocery shopping.

Eat protein such as a slice of cheese or an egg. If you don't like that most veggies hardly have any carbs. You can also get Low Carb Yogurt that only has about 3-5 carbs in it.

Try downing a cup of chicken or beef broth or some other hot liquid. I find that it suppresses my appetite some without adding calories or carbs.

Your body doesn’t nutritionally run on a time schedule. If you’re hungry, it’s your body’s way of saying feed me, so eat. Doesn’t need to be much as others have said, but if you’re counting that close, just deduct that snack from your meal.
