Why am I so Tired?
Do you find yourself getting really tired at the office, right around 2 or 3 o’clock and again at night? This was me before I realized the cause. Guess what it was? My DIET!
Every day I would get up at about 5:30-6:00am and have a couple cups of coffee, watch some news and hop in the shower & get ready for work. I was never a morning eater, so I would get into work at about 8:00am or so, grab another cup of coffee and sit down at my desk to start working….sound familiar yet?
Now it was noon and all I had eaten for the day was a few M&M’s or gummy bears for the day so far and I was STARVING! I would go out to grab something quick, usually fast food, or a sub, or sandwich, then get back to the office and sit back down again to work.
Then 3 o’clock rolls around! I’m falling asleep at my desk, so I grab another cup of coffee and something sweet to snack on. Am I starting to sound familiar?
WAIT there is more! So 5:00pm comes around and I am off work…Whoo HOO! I get home, relax and start making dinner. I have something healthy, chicken, rice and a veggie. Good job right?
BUT WAIT! 8:00pm comes and I am craving something sweet again! So I reach for a few Oreos and watch some TV and call it a night.
Do you see the problem in my day? Think about it…
I am constantly spiking my insulin/sugar with carbs and sweets and then crashing!!
I hear this all the time….I don’t have time to eat!!
I know lots of you say it (especially my nurses). I get it trust me, but there are ways to avoid such highs and lows and long periods of “fasting”.
