Check Your Glucose Tolerance

Many people who struggle with weight loss are addicted to sugar. Once you eat sugar, it sets up a craving for more. This is because your blood sugar level spikes up quickly, and then drops suddenly. When it drops you will reach for something else with sugar, because you feel tired and out of sorts. A vicious cycle is created.

According to Dr. Gillian McKeith, in You Are What You Eat (p.95), you can do a quick self-check to see if you have a problem with the regulation of insulin and glucose in your body. If you have three or more of the symptoms below, you have a problem. It’s time to make some changes.

The symptoms are:

  1. Difficulty in concentrating
  2. Excess consumption of caffeine, chocolate
  3. Excessive sweating
  4. Excessive thirst
  5. Extreme difficulty getting out of bed
  6. Falling asleep in the middle of the day/feeling really drowsy
  7. Inability to get going without a caffeine/nicotine fix
  8. Irritability without frequent meals
  9. Need for more than 8 hours of sleep


If this applies to you, here are somethings you can do:

  1. Eat fresh fruit (preferably organic) instead of other sweets
  2. Eat enough veggies and protein
  3. Get regular exercise (at least 30 min, 5 days a week)
  4. Drink enough water (half your body weight in ounces daily)
  5. Use food grade essential oils which help balance blood sugar: cinnamon, dill, fennel, coriander
