Not only am do my levels rise more for morning foods, 
but my insulin resistance is higher as well (still on 
MDI).  My morning R takes up to 5 hours to actually 
kick in and start working (though usually 3.5 hrs is 
the rule), whereas by the time dinner comes around I 
can feel it taking hold within 30 minutes.  The 
psychological symptoms come into play too... In the 
morning I don't want to so much as look at food till 
about 10:00am (time when my morning shot typically 
starts bringing my numbers down), come dinner, I get 
ravenous at about 30mins right on cue for my evening 
insulin to start working.  Of course, I realise part of 
this is my lunch shot peaking so I'm not 100% certain 
of the activation schedule of my evening shot.
