This was too cute to pass by! But I don't see 'cranky' 😆 - that's how I get when my blood sugar drops too low! But did you know having a candy can be one of the worst ways to get your sugar back up? It will quickly go from very low, to very high, only to crash after the sugar wears off. 😕
In addition to not feeling so great, having your blood sugar spiking up and down all day (even within normal levels) throws off all of your body's systems. You've heard the saying 'When Mama ain't happy, nobody's happy'? Well, when your blood sugar ain't happy, your whole body ain't happy!! That spiking up and down leads to problems with your hormones, high blood pressure and heart disease, weight gain, insulin resistance (contributes to belly fat), high cholesterol, headaches and so much more! According to Best Health Magazine, "For a long time, doctors thought that only diabetics needed to be concerned about the effect of food on their blood glucose levels. Now we know that even in healthy people, high levels after meals can, over time, damage the body, even if diabetes never develops." I've been learning more and more about the importance of having our blood sugar balanced, if you're ready to get off the sugar roller coaster or just want a little more info, just let me know - below or message me.
