Favourite midnight snacks.

Postby rbt2 » 24 Nov 2012, 00:27

Seeing as we are approaching the midnight hour and my body clock is all ovet the place, I will be snacking like a greedy bastard soon enough.
Cereals are a personal fave.
In fact, it will be Shredded Wheat soon. Drenched in milk (we only have poncey skimmed here) and covered in real sugar.

So what is yours?

I don't mind me a nice bowl of weetabix or cornflakes but usually I'd go for tomato soup with some bread. Being diabetic I try and keep my meals regular so I don't like things that I can't gauge the quantities on.

I am being serious here now, LG but are you the type of diabetic that injects?
If you ain't then there was this show on Channel 4 where a non injecting diabetic decided to fast for 2 days out of the 7.
And when I say fast it isn't technically fasting.
As a man you are allowed 600 calories per day for those 2 days. A woman is only allowed 500.
A mate's mrs was a non injecting diabetic who went on the 2day fasting lark and her diabetic condition improved dramatically.

Crisps, chocolate, haribo. More wine or beer. I'm quite partial to homemade very spicy pickled onions. Take your head off. Hmm pork pie as well.

I read on new scientist I think about a longer fasting period has cured some people with a particular kind of diabetes.

I can't recall the name of the show or the bloke who presented it but it is proven to improve diabetes, shells.
Type 2 diabetes I think.
It also aids against dementia apparently.
Now my dear old mum suffered with mild dementia towards the end and it can be hereditary.
So I'm thinking of doing this as I have put loadsa weight on these past 2 weeks.
For the non fasting days you can eat all you want but you apparently never eat to excess on this regime.
I like the fact it battles dementia but I don't know if it aids schizophrenia.
And neither do I.

I distrust patriotism; the reasonable man can find little in these days that is worth dying for. But dying against - there's enough iniquity in Europe to carry the most urbane or decadent into battle.

You do not agree with my quest. I understand that, so much as it is possible to understand someone with whom I disagree so completely.

I have type 1, juvenile, diabetes. The fasting thing wouldn't help me. I do like waking up feeling like I'm having a low blood sugar hypo as it means I can have chocolate biscuits or ice cream.

So what's the difference betwixt types 1 and 2 then?
And what is juvenile diabetes?
Genuinely interested, by the way.
