Good morning everyone and Happy Monday!
Do you find yourself waking up tired making it hard to get your day started in a robust way? Do you get big dips in your energy levels in the afternoon? Are you gaining weight in your mid-section and uncertain as to why?
All of these symptoms could be signs that you have an unstable blood sugar, also known as Hypoglycemia.
Your blood sugar waxes and wanes throughout the day depending on the foods you’ve eaten and when you have eaten them. If you have a big candy bar, for example, your blood sugar will spike upwards and then come crashing down not long after leaving you feeling tired, foggy and hungry for more sugar.
Hypoglycemia can increase your cravings and appetite, leading to weight gain. It can also leave you feeling depleted. As importantly, Hypoglycemia can be the first step towards developing pre-diabetes and eventually, Type 2 Diabetes. Fortunately though, this problem is easily corrected through diet.
In today’s Motivational Monday, I am going to share with you the 5 foods you can include in your diet right away to stabilize your blood sugar. By including these foods in your diet you can start feeling full longer, have better energy levels and reduce your cravings and appetite.
Once you have watched the video, I’d love to hear from you! Do you have hypoglycemia and if so, what foods or habits are essential for you to keep it under control? Let me know in the comments below.
I hope you are all of to a great week and that the weather in your part of the world is beautiful and on its way to becoming warm…
