    Hello Richard and welcome to the forum.
    It dosent sound to me like you are eating the right food,you dont have to be starving ,but knowing what is the right food to eat will help.cut out the sandwich and biscuits as they are carbs,they wont fill you and will affect blood sugar.
    Replace them with bacon egg or full fat yogurt and berries for breakfast,and replace your biscuits with cheese,
    Look round the forum at the low carb diets.
