If you suffer from hypoglycemia then the correct hypoglycemic diet is extremely important. Certain foods are broken down by the body and absorbed into our bloodstream quicker than others.
Because these foods (known as high GI foods) are absorbed very quickly into the bloodstream the pancreas then overreacts and produces large doses of insulin to combat rising blood sugar levels.
This large amount of insulin in the blood then causes blood sugar levels to plummet to an uncomfortably low level and brings on an array of symptoms ranging from headaches and dizziness to blackouts and seizures.
However hope is at hand!
Through careful control of your hypoglycemic diet and through regular exercise and taking of supplements, a hypoglycemic can greatly limit the effects of his or her condition to a manageable level.
What should you eat if you are Hypoglycemic?
As a hypoglycemic, your hypoglycemic diet should consist of three main food types; Protein, carbohydrates and fats.
However these food types should be eaten in the appropriate ratios and at the right times. For not all proteins will benefit the hypoglycemic nor will all carbohydrates.
Similarly eating the wrong type of fats, will expose a hypoglycemic to a much higher risk of developing harmful conditions such as heart disease and raised cholesterol levels.
So which foods can a Hypoglycemic eat?
It is essential that a Hypoglycemic is able to differentiate between good and bad carbohydrates, good and bad proteins and good and bad fats. As it is this distinction that will allow a hypoglycemic to structure their hypoglycemic diet in order to get their condition under control.
It is also important that as a hypoglycemic you are aware not only what you should be eating but also:
a)When you should be eating these foods
b)How much of these foods you should be eating
