Hungry all the time

I feel hungry all the time. I am taking insulin 4 times a day and my doctor doesn't want me snacking if I can keep from it. If I do snack it can't be anything with carbs. Does anyone else get upset and depressed because you feel like you never get full? I get so depressed. I have only been diagnosed for 2 1/2 years now and have been on insulin since May of this year. I chose insulin because we want to get pregnant and the oral meds you can't take while pregnant. So my endocrinologist thought insulin was for the best. I take Levemir at bed and Nova Log with my meals. I have been on Nova Log since the last week in June. This is so new to me. With my oral meds if my glucose was high there was nothing I could do and I snacked more. But now that I am on insulin and having to watch it so closely, I don't snack :( So depressing :(
