If I may add my 2¢ here, you are doing great and with the right food plan you can keep going. What fergusc said is true. If you want to leave your hunger behind stop eating starches, grains, breads, pastas and potatoes and instead double up on your broccoli, spinach, salad and all things green. Drizzle it with olive oil (good for your cholesterol levels and holds hunger at bay) and then add your tablespoon of real dressing. Eat healthy meats, fish, cheese and eggs along with lots of veggies and some bananas and oranges, apples and even your serving of pineapple. You will find your hunger disappears. I've been doing this for some time.. and today at my daughter's baby shower there was precious little to eat that wasnt' starchy... I ate veggies & cheese and had a taste of bread and an apple salad (that turned out to have cut up SNICKERS bars hiding in the cool whip!!!) Just that small amount of carbs and by the time I got home I was ready to rip the cupboards apart and eat everything that wasn't nailed down.
I had a scrambled egg and some sausage with a slice of cheese. It was fast, filling and helped me handle my 'starvation attack' brought on by the carbs at the party. Eating piles of veggies sautéd in olive oil and lots of garlic keeps my tummy happy and my weight dropping. Hang in there and don't worry. If you have diabetes we can help you learn how to live, and live well, with it.
