Healing From within
Sometimes we wake up still tired even after an 8 hour sleep, so we reach for the coffee a quick energy fix, that wears off and we realize that we haven't eaten breakfast yet because the coffee supressed our need for food. So we go to the break room grab a doughnut and another cup of coffee. Then the sugar high kicks in and then crash, down you come again...coffee with lunch or maybe just pasta... lunch sits heavily and doesn't give you that energy burst that you get from sugar, so you grab the chocolate at 3pm which helps you through until you get home and want nothing to do with anything.,, find yourself mad at everything and frustrated with simple things that typicall wouldn't bother you. This is a classic case of blood spikes. What you have done is caused a rush of insulin to be released and your body doesn\t know how to hadle the spikes, once the insulin has done its job and leveled your blood sugar you feel tired and low energy. The reason for this low is that your body is tired as it has yet to have any nutrients come in. Please respect your body, eat a nice healthy breakfast within an hour of waking up. Have oatmel with cinnamon and coconut oil, which gives you protien, fat and complex carbs which keep your body feeling fuller longer, the cinnamon keeps your blood sugar stable, and the coconut oil is amazing for all areas of your body.
