Subject: Farmers diet question

Wheelersburg, Ohio
Hoping John Burns or others can chime in. Does anyone have any good resources for farmers trying to eat healthier? My problem is that some days I cut timber and split firewood. Since I'm a bigger guy 6'2" and weigh about 220 I think I'm burning well over 10k calories on these days. Then on days like today I probably haven't burned over 1000 calories. My doctor keeps telling me I have "borderline" high sugar. She has never said diabetes, just borderline high. She also doesn't consider work exercise. If I eat portions wife cooks I get what i think is low blood sugar and feel really week and tired and in extreme cases confused. I've cut out all cereal, most bread, most soda and pasta. I've been trying to get more protein through nuts, cheese, and more meat and lots of eggs. I eat a lot of fruit also. It just seems like I can't eat enough of that stuff when I'm logging, cutting firewood, fencing, or square baling hay.
