I eat breakfast at 6:00. My schedule for lunch is at 1:00. Is that to long between meals?

Your bg meter can answer that better than I can but for me I try to eat even a little bit every 3-4 hours. Now please don't picture me as Jabba the Hutt … I don't overeat at each meal/snack. You are talking of seven hours between breakfast and lunch so why not consider something around 9:45 or so… a few low fat cheese sticks, a handful of nuts, a low fat yogurt, or something (NO, you shouldn't lay a finger on your Butterfinger) just to get a little nutrition to your mission. See how it goes in affecting your mind, body and soul and tweak things but seven hours between food is, in MY opinion, too much.

It would be for me,I would be sinking into the low #s
If I need to go a long time between meals I have some good snaks on hand.
This has saved me from big time lows.

Yes. I eat at 7- 730ish and then I eat lunch at 12- 1230ish, and dinner at 5. Check my bedtime glucose at 9 and take my insulin, then if my sugar is low enough I eat a snack.
