Sound advice.

One side you say "Skip meal". On the other side you say,"Prefer 6 meals in stead if three."?

Also experts say that watermelon is not good for Diabetic

try to skip evening meal ,if not feeling hungry .Sometimes we are not hungry and take meals as if it is a ritual .Regarding 6 meals ,it is advised to take small meals 6 times instead of 3 large meals .It will prevent sudden increase of blood sugar
