We are all different, but here are a couple of ideas.
Pure protein. While this can still raise BG levels, it’s usually delayed so it would be after you are asleep so you wouldn’t have to worry about stacking. If I get hungry in the evening, I reach for just plain fake hot dogs, maybe with catsup or fake bacon etc as I’m a vegan. If you make yourself wait 30-60 minutes after you have eaten something like that, you might find you’re not hungry anymore???
Sometimes when food is an issue, it’s best not to eat at all because once you start you can’t stop? It might be aggravating and you might not feel good for a few days, but sometimes it’s breaking a behavior or pattern that’s needed. Although behavior changes I think take 2-3 weeks?
Higher fat meal with dinner? More protein??? Sometimes those leave you feeling fuller and it might help break the pattern.
When I decided to cut back on food as I was gaining weight when I first started insulin years ago … The first thing I aimed at was “dinner”. I didn’t get home until 9 at night, so it was late night eating. I started first switching to a huge bowl of homemade vegetable soup with chunky lower carb vegetables, so it didn’t require a lot of insulin. This is as easy as water, throw in some carrots, but lots celery, green beans, broccoli, cauliflower etc and some tomatoes, or tomato sauce. Then I slowly decreased how much over time… Until I was happy with just a tangerine or apple at night and then I mostly stopped everything after a while, but if I felt hungry I still had an apple or tangerine etc. In essence I weaned myself off bigger amounts of food. I’m just saying the dinner thing because maybe you can apply it to your snack. This is the meal/snack I will eat if I get hungry. Anything else I will have tomorrow with breakfast or lunch??? Popcorn, bowl of veggies or soup etc might work for this
We are in this for the long haul and sometimes it takes time to adjust. Don’t beat yourself up if you slip up, just try to slowly change the behavior? Each day is a new day.
Good luck, I hope you find a solution that helps!!!
