Turns as if I'm truly hypoglycemic...or in the words of a famous SNL skit, A "Hyper-hypo!" I'm finding that my sugar levels can get all out of whack and I can get to feeling light-headed and faintish. Thankfully I've seen my doctor and he's confirmed I am hypoglycemic (low sugar levels). I'm finding that I need a protein with a complex carb.
Some of my favorite helpful snacks have been apples with natural peanut butter. Cheese and whole grain crackers. Hummus with Kashi crackers. Protein drinks. Yogurt with home made granola. Dried fruit and nuts. Chicken with anything...brown rice, beans, etc. Eggs on a bagel or english muffin.
Do you have any other suggestions? I need protein. Please advise.
