Hello, I'm. Christi and have been type 2 for about 4 months now. My BS is pretty stable now and according to a complete blood panel, my Dr lowered my Lantis (long acting insulin) from 40 to 30 units. Along with Novalog and metformin and my diet, I'm doing pretty good so far. I'm working towards going from 4 shots a day to just two pills then just the diet to keep my BS under control. My average sugar level reads 80-95 three times a day. But my problem is I'm not that big of an eater and am supposed to eat three meals and three to four snacks a day. I don't eat very many carbs or sugar in one day. But I really have to force my self to eat sometimes. I'm on a strict schedule, due to my working hours, with my shots and meals. What can I eat or rather how much do I have to eat for it to constitute as a meal or snack? I'm pretty happy with my numbers, but this eating all the times really bothers me. Thanks for any help you can give.

You are mentioning very general guidelines. Since we are all unique individuals, a diet would have to be tailored and modified to an individual. Your best bet would be to see an RD (registered dietician) to determine how many calories per day for your size and weight, as well as a healthy meal plan. You could also go to the ASK THE EXPERT section of DC, since they do have dieticians that will respond.
