From Which Meal Should I Reduce Kcals In This Situation?

I'm an insulin dependent diabetic & weigh 220lbs with around 20% bodyfat.  I'm currently cutting on a diet of 2300 Kcals per day in order to get down to around 12-13% bodyfat.  I'm not too concerned with abs, I just want a flat stomach as I have a bit of a belly at the moment.  Nothing major, but you can tell it's there.  Anyway, as I'm diabetic & cutting, it means that occasionally I'll become Hypoglycemic (low blood sugar) & I'll need to have something such as a few teaspoons of sugar in water in order to bring my blood sugar levels back up.  I usually have around 5-6 teaspoons of sugar which is 75-90 calories.

Now obviously due to this happening, it means I'll need to reduce calories in another meal in order to compensate for the calories in the sugar.  The thing is though, I'm not quite sure WHICH meal to reduce calories in.  If I ever went Hypoglycemic & needed to have some sugar, I was thinking of reducing calories in my last meal of the day, and just reducing the amount of peanuts I have.  Would this be a decent approach?  The reason for this is that if I reduced calories in any other meal, I was worried that I may go Hypoglycemic AGAIN because of this due to me being active during the day whereas if I reduce calories before bed, I'm sedentary therefore a Hypo is less likely to occur.  My diet is posted below anyway, incase anybody wants to check it in order to form an opinion.

Many thanks in advance!

    Seems like the question was too long to warrant any responses from anybody, nevermind.

    That or people very sensibly don't want to give advice in the situation where type 1 diabetes is involved!

    Yes you can try loosing a small amount of fat from each meal, this would be the smallest change volume wise (useful when possibly eating less food) and have the smallest effect upon blood sugar regulation, if you're monitoring all amounts of food this closely day in day out.

    Out of interest have you been on the DAFNE course?
