I am searching for a diabetic meal plan that focuses on heavier lunches (that can be lunchboxed)and light dinners due to the shiftwork my husband does(He works 7a-7p days for two weeks and then 7p-7a nights for two weeks with a few daytime days off scattered between.)It is nearly impossible to keep his sugars even close to being controlled. Do you know of any books or websites that might address this problem?

While your husband alternates between the day and night shifts, his diabetes can still be managed. It’s just a question of eating right for the hours he keeps. A great place to go for help is the website of the American Diabetes Association (http://www.diabetes.org/). They have lots of recipes which can meet your special needs, and they even have a live hotline you can call if you can’t find the information that you want on the website. Their toll free number is 1-800-DIABETES (1-800-342-2383). The hotline hours of operation are Monday – Friday, 8:30 AM – 8 PM Eastern Standard Time.
