BLOOD SUGARS
DO YOU SUFFER FROM BLOOD SUGAR SWINGS?
You do if the answer is YES to the following;

Do you feel tired or sleepy after a meal?
Do you feel light headed or irritable when you haven’t eaten for a while?
Do you like eating sugary foods or white refined carbohydrates such as mashed potato and white bread?
Do you find it hard to lose weight around your tummy or midriff?
Do you get thirsty easily?
Do you suffer from anxiety or stress?
SHORT TERM
Blood sugar swings can make you;
tired
irritable
needing to take cat naps in the afternoon
lose concentration easily
feel confused at times
stop you losing weight
WHY?
This is because the sugar in your blood rises to a certain danger point,
This tells the pancreas to make the hormone insulin.
Insulin flows into the blood to bring down the excess sugar levels.
It does this to store away the sugar as fat for future energy.
The sugar then becomes too low and the body craves more sugar!

LONG TERM
Blood sugar swings increase your risk of type 2 diabetes.
This is because you can become insensitive to the insulin.
More is needed to bring down the sugar in the blood to safe levels.
The body then finds it hard to produce enough insulin,
This causes long term high blood sugar levels
Fat is stored around your waist
Drugs are needed to replace the body’s natural reserves.

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO?
Eat every two hours – better to have 6 small meals rather than
3 large
Eat similar amounts of protein and complex carbohydrates such as chicken and wholemeal pasta or almonds and an apple
Keep off caffeine, even decaffeinated. Try Redbush tea, fruit and herbal teas instead
Keep off sugar especially the alcoholic type!
Keep off white floury cakes and biscuits and sugary foods such as sugary cereals, dried fruit and biscuits. Try Muesli or low sugar wholemeal banana muffins or rough Oat cakes with nut butter instead
Don’t miss a meal! Always have something for breakfast even if you don’t feel hungry
Always dilute juice
Reduce stress! Regular exercise can also be beneficial for stress
