Beware Hypoglycemia - It Comes in the Innocent Morning Coffee.

The desperate need for coffee, tea and refined foods in the morning is often the

result of low blood sugar levels(hypoglycemia)- which points to further illnesses down the road.



What a kick-start to the system! The fast releasing refined flour, combined with the coffee, forces up low blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia) with the sudden release of adrenalin. You begin to feel all is well with the morning - and the body is back to normal.



As the low blood sugar levels rise the body feels alert and even energised. The drinking of coffee relaxes us and we think surely this could not be doing any harm.



But a doctor, Peter Rogers, has asked in a study whether coffee was relieving withdrawal symptoms (from overnight) or increasing alertness. In fact, he found that the people who drink coffee do not feel better than non-drinkers.



They just feel vastly better than they did in the first 10 minutes after waking. The first coffee relieves the withdrawal symptoms of coffee.



Coffee isn't the only substance to act this way on your body - sugar and refined carbohydrates, especially in combination, act in a similar manner. As in a stressful situation the body's glands release adrenalin and dopamine hormones.



These raise your low blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia) by drawing on your glucose reserves to provide fast fuel to the body. This was especially useful in prehistoric times when evasive action was required after meeting a wild beast.



But nowadays heart desease and diabetes are a direct result of the body reacting in the same way to a wild bear, stress, sugar and coffee.



The body sits atop a slippery slope - gradually it requires more and more stimulants and sugars to feel normal. It soon doesn't react to adrenalin, it's own natural stimulant.



What can be done? You need to drastically reduce stimulants and cut sugar out of your diet completely. This is why dieting programmes put coffee very low on the list of 'must haves'. It should be seen as a treat, not a regular part of the diet.



However, the good news is once you stop and eat a balanced diet, your low blood sugar levels become a thing of the past. Fatigue and crazy longing for refined food will be gone.



Some research will be needed on your part to change your dieting plans. You will need the very latest and extensive knowledge of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar levels) and it does not need to break the bank.
