Everyday around three o'clock i get very very hungry.  i don't know what to eat.  The problem is I hate vegtables.  What can I eat?
Woke up last night coughing so I went downstars and took a swig of cough surup.  This moring my suger was 135 couldn't figure out why.  Looked at the cough meds. it was full of suger.  You have to watch every little thing.

Oh boy, I know what you mean.  Mid-afternoon I get hungry too.  Lately I've been drinking a mug of coffee and having some pistachio nuts.  Other ideas:  hard boiled egg, pieces of cheese, nuts, a couple of slices of cold cuts (turkey, roast beef, etc. but watch the ham for its "glaze" or brown sugar!), part of a container of sugar-free yogurt, olives.  Or, a combination of some of those.  That should keep you till dinner.  And, yes!  Cough syrup!  And cough drops - even the "sugar-free" if you have a few like they're candy.

Almonds. (One of my "go-tos"). Chunk o cheese. Yogurt. You may want to have that snack around 2:30-2:45 to pre-empt the hunger strike. Sometimes works for me :-)

Pre-empt!!! PHish, how I long for a life where I can be pro-active instead of reactive! I envy you!

Right now I'm ruled by a 32 inch tiny tyrant who is cutting teeth. She has all of us dancing to her tune with her plaintive cries and it doesnt' help that we are snowbound. If you could just call me every day about 2:30 and remind me to eat some nuts I'd appreciate it. tongue LOL! I can barely remember to take my meds!

Nuts are good. Or......... you can save a unit of carbs from your meals, and have 1 unit of carbs. I eat spartically due to chemo (I eatwhen I can litterly). So when I can, I eat 3units. instead of my 4 units of carbs. That way if I get hungry or too sick I have a spare unit I can work with. After a dreadly afternoon of "reaction of chemo" I'll sip on some tea with ginger in it. Or at gatorade. To try to rehydrate me. Although there are times that it takes an iv to rehydrate me.
