A lovely little girl was holding two apples with both hands. Her Mom came in and softly asked her little daughter with a smile: “Sweetie, could you give your Mom one of your two apples?” The girl looked up at her Mom for some seconds, then she suddenly took a quick bite of one apple, and then quickly of the other. The Mom felt the smile on her face freeze. She tried hard not to reveal her disappointment. Then the little girl handed one of her bitten apples to her Mom, and said: "Mommy, here you are. This is the sweeter one."
My Dr. is recommending that I eat several smaller meals throughout the day now that I have been diagnosed as having "Hypoglycemia". Instead of eating 3 regular meals and 2 snacks, I would be eating 6 smaller meals through out the day. By eating at regular intervals, my blood sugar levels (and therefore my energy levels) would remain stable. So, instead of having that mid-afternoon crash, I would be full of energy through dinnertime! By eating every few hours (especially if when we chew on fruits and veggies) can also help add extra the nutrition that might be missing from other meals. By cutting out refined sugar, I also cut a lot of fruits that were high in sugar as well. I have recently learned that my body needs this natural sugar. Therefore I have started re-introducing them back into my meal plans as needed. This is helping to restart my metabolism. How many of you know what "Hypoglycemia" is? Could you be suffering from this condition and not know it? I was.
Hypoglycemia : deficiency of glucose ( sugar ) in the bloodstream. Low Blood Sugar.
