Hi, as a past & occasional sufferer myself, I have learned alot since I began being treated for diabetes. You have sugar drops because your body crashes without energy and wjhen you eat sugary foods or foods without fat or protein, it digests so quickly that you end up with more of the of the cells that eat up the glycemia than you should. Over time this can lead to serious problems, so, please try to be gentler with your body. You are an important part of this world whether or not you have weight you want to lose. So take of the only body you'll have this life (work at it anyway, that's what I;m trying to do).
The way to STOP a low blood sugar is to have a hard candy - no chocolate, nothing that would have fat. Juice, 8 oz, also works at this point. It takes about 20 minutes or so to feel better and the danger is in continuing to eat so you'll feel better - it doesn't work that way - you don't have to keep feeding yourself. However, you _must_ follow it up with a small, balanced meal/snack that will tide you over to the next meal. That is the sugar roller coaster and you have to stop the train and get off as often as you can for as long as you can.
The way to AVOID low BS in the first place is to eat a balanced meal that has some carbs, some fat, and some protein. This way your blood sugar stays at a fairly steady level until your next meal. (of course, you want your fresh fruits and veggies, too :)
I wish you health and better self love. If you're anorexic, please get help. I care, we all care! We all want to see each other succeed.
We are all in process...
