Question about eating sweets

Moms View Message Board: General Discussion: Archive June 2004: Question about eating sweets
By Janet on Tuesday, June 29, 2004 - 04:11 pm:

Just wondering if I'm alone in this--I mentioned it at work the other day and got strange looks. If I'm super hungry, and snarf something like cookies or donuts or even (like today) a frosted granola bar, about 1/2 hour after I feel absolutely awful! Kinda sick and just gross-feeling. I usually can't handle sweet things in the morning, and only eat them if I'm not really hungry. Anyone else like this, or am I a museum piece? LOL

I feel like this too. I get nautiuos and get a bad headache. You are not alone.

The sugar causes your blood sugar levels to go up quickly and that can cause the sick feeling.
Try nuts or a peanut butter

Sugar first causes your blood sugar to go up (often making someone sleepy). A short time later, lots of insulin is pumped into your bloodstream causing your blood sugar to drop.

If your system over compensates (like me) many people then get hypoglycemic(low blood sugar) sympthoms like dizzyness, quesy stomach, etc.

If you can afford it, you may want to ask your doctor to test your fasting blood sugar and possibly give you a "blood glucose tolerance test".

It can help detect signs of diabetes before it gets serious.

I can't eat sweets in the morning unless I want to be tired and sick all day. I can eat sweets after I eat a meal.

I have found, through trial and error, that the less sugar I consume - period - the better I feel.

Particularly interesting too, for anyone with arthritis, fibromyalgia or inflammatory disease processes - since yeast thrives on sugar and it is possible to have systemic yeast, the less sugar you consume, the less pain you have. It's a fact, and I know first hand, it's true.

I also discovered I had less sinus problems when I cut way back on sugar.

Wow! Thanks for the info... good to know I'm "normal" (after a fashion, LOL) :)
