Very recently I was diagnosed with a syndrom which has insulin resistance as one of the major symptoms. My doctor told me my fasting sugar levels are moderately high and I need to cut down on sugar and carbs.
So, being a good girl, I cut out all of my soda and sweet drinks (a whole heck of a lot. I drink more than I eat.) I have not been the same since. For 3 days I’ve gotten dizzy spells. I was about ready to pass out this morning until I ate something.
I crave sweets now. WTF? How could my body want something that’s so bad for it? What’s the difference between diabetes and insulin resistance? Should I go back to my regular eating habits? I mean I was not passing out when I was happily drinking all those Peach Snapples and Coke.
