Reactive Hypoglycemia – One Bad Choice Can Ruin Your Day

reactive hypoglycemiaI’ve been dealing with reactive hypoglycemia for years, and for the most part, I’ve learned what I can eat and what I can’t eat. However, I’m human, and I like to eat stuff that I probably shouldn’t. However, this isn’t always the best idea.

The other day, while at work, I decided I had to have some Reese’s cups shortly after lunch. After all, Reese’s cups used to be my favorite candy and how bad could two Reese’s cups be for me right? Those things are just awesome! I mean who doesn’t like Reese’s cups? (By the way, if a person doesn’t like Reese’s cups, you should be concerned!)

Well, I of course inhaled the Reese’s cups and then almost instantly came the huge sugar high. Okay, great! – But I knew what was coming next. The crash! – And man did it hit me hard!

All of the sudden I was extremely tired. I had that feeling again like a toddler could beat my butt. My one bad choice had ruined my day. Reactive hypoglycemia was not in full effect!

I had almost four more hours to go in the work day and here I was with a headache, feeling dizzy, anxious and incredibly tired. What the heck would I do? – Or could I do? Answer? Absolutely nothing! I had eaten well all the way up to the point of the Reese’s cups. And after eating that little treat, I’d thrown my body off so bad that I wouldn’t be fully recovered until some major sleep that night.

So what’s the lesson here? Well for me it’s don’t ruin your day of feeling well with that urge to be bad! It’s really not worth it. I mean when you have reactive hypoglycemia, you already know what types of food are going to do you in right? Anyway, now if I must eat bad, I compromise. I do it at night when I’m going to bed.
