On occasion, I have the dreaded ‘munchies‘. I hate it. No, really, I do. For the munchies push me toward the large container of Goldfish crackers and require me to consume a small bowl full of them.
But as of late, I have been successfully fighting off the cursed munchies with a spoonful of peanut butter or cheese or some form of protein. Does it work? My gut says, “no”, but my diabetes says, “YES!”
Why? With a bowl of Goldfish, I have to take a few extra units of insulin to cover the carbohydrates. Not really a big deal if you have an active job or regularly exercise. I, however, have a desk job and being sedentary adds pounds and increases the waistline and adds shelf space and…
Oh, forget it! You get the idea. If we don’t exercise, we get (gulp!) soft. Not that I have a rock hard body, mind you, but I want to be in shape, I want to be healthy. Heck, I’m even contemplating the replacement of beer with an occasional glass of wine. (Okay, stop laughing right now! I know you’re laughing. I can hear it…)
So, any ideas on fighting the munchies? I guess I could do peanut butter on celery sticks or other vegetables. Any help is very, very appreciated.
