When you feel weak and your hands suddenly start shaking like a leaf in the wind, it’s a clear sign your blood sugar is too low. At that moment, you’d eat just about anything to get your stability back.
You most likely feel anxious, short tempered and turn into an emotional volcano waiting to erupt. And it’s no wonder, because when your blood sugar is low, it’s a clear signal you need to refuel as quickly as possible.
Eat the food you love and enjoy every mouthful. Simple, right? But what if you can’t because you’re feeling bloated after every meal you have? What if you need to open that zipper or your inflated belly will do it for you?
You may feel at a dead end when bloating comes regardless of what you eat. You might have just enjoyed a bean chilli, salad, some ice-cream or nibbled on some nuts.
The alarm goes off and your daily routine has begun – lunches and snacks for the kids – check, getting them ready for school -check, iron your clothes for work – check. While nibbling on a bar on your way to work, you suppress that ever returning thought – “I need to find more time to eat healthy. ”
Then, while making a quick cup of coffee at work you’re thinking that tomorrow you’ll get up earlier so you can spare a few extra minutes to have some proper breakfast.
One more scoop, one more fix and I’m done. Maybe one more after that … I can’t even count how many times I fought the desire for eating more chocolate or ice cream.I tried to resist the sugar cravings only to give in, wiping out everything sweet I could lay my hands on.
Then I had endless conversations with my conscience, promising that from now on I’d play by the moderation rule which can hurt no-one, right?
“Sorry I can’t make it today! My muscles are aching, my throat’s sore and my head could explode”… Don’t you just hate when the flu symptoms sneak in and after the initial fight your body gives in? You call upon your old friend Paracetamol and the nights when you can hardly breath seem endless.
It doesn’t matter whether it’s winter, spring or autumn…when your immunity is low and stress levels are up, it’s an ideal combination to pick up a bug or two.
