"I think Acidrock has a point about the popcorn. It has a lot of carbs. I have found that carbs cause me to gain weight as much or more that fat does. I still love my popcorn as a metter of fact I ate some last night but now it's an occasional…"

"If the nighttime BG is dropping, maybe adjust the timing of basal insulin to back off on it a bit and work to avoid the popcorn? I'm a huge nighttime snack addict too, and I know that it's hard. One of my buddies has lost about 90-100 lbs…"
