RE: Balance in snacks

I'm no pro, but I do have reactive hypoglycemia, which can behave a lot like type 2 diabetes. I agree with the second post. I've noticed that on this plan, my blood sugar stays more steady and I don't have the same problem with just fruit alone. However, I have noticed that it's better if I stick with lower-sugar fruits... for some reason, apples send me into danger territory (I love them, though!).
I think it's best to do what works for your body. If a snack of fruit messes with your blood sugar, have a snack of vegetables instead. This is lower in calories, lower in sugar, and higher in nutrients than fruit would be, anyway. Vegetables are the perfect food!
