My dietician has me on 1 carb (15g) and 1 protein (7g) as late as I can eat it before bed, so around 9:30pm. I really see no difference in my fasting numbers regardless of what type of snack I eat. I can even skip the protein and I'll see the same fasting numbers. I only see a super high fasting reading if I don't have a snack at all and my after dinner numbers were low. I get that sunrise effect.

Anyways, I'm just curious when you were told to have your snack and what it's suppose to be.

Thanks,
Andrea

I'm allowed 30g of carbs per meal/snack. So I aim for that, with around 10g protein for my night-time snack. Usually I have it around 9:00. Sometimes I have a baked quesadilla on a lo-carb tortilla topped with black beans, cheese and sometimes peppers, with salsa. If I'm lazy it's a piece of double-fiber toast with butter and a glass of milk. If I'm constipated then it's a FiberPlus bar and a glass of milk. I typically go to bed around 10 or 10:30; if I feel a bit hungry at that point then I have a few handfuls of whole-grain Goldfish crackers; that doesn't seem to effect my fasting numbers. If I have a high after-dinner number, I always go for the baked quesadilla, but if my after-dinner number is low then I can have one of the other options and still have a good fasting number.

I'm supposed to have 30g carbs with "some" protein. I have a pretty standard night time snack of one slice of sprouted grain toast with peanut butter and a cup of milk.
