RE the 70s and snacking, I grew up in the 60s and my family as well as all my friends families at 3 meals a day. There were no snacks except possibly Saturday night. Usually this was a cereal bowl of popcorn and perhaps a shared bottle (16 oz back then) of regular soda. So about 4 oz of soda. If you complained of feeling hungry before supper, it was "you'll spoil your appetite". This was just normal eating. Dishes were done and no one ate again until the next meal.
At school, there were no snacks except kindergarteners who got milk and a graham cracker for a snack midmorning before their nap. Kindergarten was a half day. No one starved. Poor grades weren't blamed on lack of food at home. Funny how test scores continue to drop and yet we are providing more and more food to kids at school (breakfast, lunches and now, in our area, we are providing afterschool snacks and even box lunches for kids to take home and eat. Ok, off my soapbox.

@Sunny_Bunny_ I am coming to the same conclusion. I made an almond cake from George Stella's cookbook that I got out of the library, and while I did not binge on it the way I would if it were a "regular" cake, I did not like how it made me feel. Whether it was the Splenda (which I am not used to) or the heaviness of the almond flour, it just didn't sit easy in my stomach. I also didn't like how it lit up my brain the way sweets do. When I finished eating a piece, I wanted another. Like right away.

Roseygirl1, my doctor recently changed my T2D med from Janumet to Metformin. The Janumet had a component that raised insulin and I thought the change would be good. My FBS had been mid-90s to low 100s before the change. Now they have been 135, 127, 125, 115. They seem to be working their way back down, and I guess I'll just have to be patient and see how things end up. I was hoping to go off meds one of these days - that was my strongest motivation for LCHF eating.
