Eating the right foods is essential to stabilizing blood sugar levels. The first step is to stop eating sugar. You also need to cut back on caffeine, which worsens the symptoms of low blood sugar such as shakiness and irritability when you get hungry. Sugar and caffeine “fan the flames” of sugar addiction, hypoglycemia, and adrenal exhaustion.
It’s important to also avoid processed foods that contain white flour. White flour is quickly converted into sugar in your body. Whole grains are a good alternative, but aim to decrease the amount of bread and pasta you eat overall. To keep your blood sugar on an even keel, don’t let yourself get too hungry. Eating small, frequent, high-protein, low-sugar meals (what’s known as “grazing”), as opposed to the usual three large ones, can make a huge difference in the way you feel.
