My blood sugar was crashing on a daily basis. It was getting so severe that I wasn’t able to leave my house for a 1-2 mile walk around the neighborhood without getting all shaky. In order for me to go for a walk, I would eat a handful of raw almonds. If I ate the almonds, I would be able to walk without having a blood sugar crash. That should have been a wake up call for me, but it wasn’t. Instead of looking into regulating my blood sugar, I did as I always did…trying to eat (healthily) to control it. For as long as I can remember, I have tried to manage my blood sugar with food…I never left the house without packing extra food in my purse, bag, or backpack. Many days, I would plan out the snacks I would need to have on hand so I could make it between meals.
With those frequent blood sugar crashes, I frequently had dizziness, shakiness, hunger, headaches, irritability, weakness, anxiety, sudden fatigue, and poor concentration. In many cases, I would become so hungry that I would binge eat to satisfy those hunger feelings.
Within a few days of drinking the pink drink, it was a complete turn around…
- I wasn’t getting all shaky and losing concentration
- I wasn’t snacking
- I was eating less at meals
- I had more energy
