I'm desperately trying to up my water and liquid intake. Especially with it being so hot right now, it's very important to stay hydrated. I'm loving these packets from True Lemon, my favorite flavors are the black cherry and watermelon. They do have 1g of sugar in them, but are plan approved per THM as the amount of sugar in them won't impact blood sugar.

  1. I am confused.... I thought our food plan was for 5 meals/snacks in a day. Why is this just 4?

    1. I don't have enough time between breakfast and lunch for a snack. Sometimes I'm hungry after dinner, but not usually. If I am I grab a small handful of nuts to tide me over til morning. Do what works best for you.
