@drewsdarlin I think you already got some great advice. I'd say:Track what you're eating. Write it down or use an app. Actually measure or weigh your portions. Look for hidden carbs in what you're eating (rememeber, sugar is a carb, and sugar has lots of names. Like "high fructose corn syrup".)Limit processed/fast foods as they usually have lots of (hidden) sugar.***High protien diet.**Try to make sure any carbs you do have, are complex carbs. FYI, when eaten alone, carrots apparently have a "high glycemic index", meaning they raise your BGL more than you'd think.Don't drink your sugar/carb allowance (juice, pop, sports drinks etc).Frequent small meals will help keep your BGL more even, instead of yo-yoing/spiking and crashing.***Exercise*****Drink lots of water. You don't have to chug it. But frequently sip it all day. There are free apps you can get to help you track your water intake and that can remind you to drink. A reusable water bottle that has measurements on it is handy. (My OB wants me drinking 5L /day. Obviously you should speak to your own doctor or dietician for what is right for you though).Water/being properly hydrated, really does help lower BGL. We use different measurements in Canada vs the states (normal is 4-7mmol) and I've seen people at potentially dangerously high leveks, say, 28, come down 8 points after drinking 500mL of water. (After 33, our monitors only read "high". I've seen people at 26 in a coma. Everyones body is different ).If you have trouble consuming water, I'd suggest avoiding caffine since it's a dieuretic.Disclaimer: not a doctor or dietician. Talk to yours for advice
