You may have heard the talking heads babbling about this study in which researchers found that being hungry can affect behavior in a bad way. They call it being HANGRY
It is, like, hard to believe that it took a three year study to conclude that when your blood sugar is low it messes with your brain.
I swear it is a national disgrace that people don't know this. This stuff that should be taught in school -- first grade.
Save your psyche, feel better, lose fat, look better -- read this
For years I have been telling people I work with ( I avoid calling them clients because I think it sounds so pretentious) about how valuable it is to know how our blood sugar reacts to things we eat.
A nice lady at the gym working with a trainer told me she was working with an "Exercise Physiologist" Wow! I hope the trainer didn't tell her that.
I have not yet seen anybody who worked with their glucose testing results and did not:
- lose weight
- improve their fitness
- look and feel better
- All of those and more.
And it comes fast so long as they do something with the feedback the testing gives them -- by that I mean fix what is causing the unaccpetable test results.
Simple and cheap
This is a link to an article I did about blood sugar testing. Since the article was written the cost of test meters and test strips has dropped a bunch.
I get nothing for saying this, but I use and suggest the ReliOn Prime meter and strips found here. The meters last forever in case you wonder, and the strips are the lowest price anywhere.
Here's what to do next, and your guarantee
If you are interested you can read some of these articles I have done about the topic.
And this is lenghty piece I did that was part of a study.
If you are overweight or obese, this cheap testing will be a huge help if not a minor miracle worker -- as long as you really want to do something about how you look and feel. The tests by themselves won't do anything if you don't use them.
Here is the warning
Seeing what your eating habits ares doing to your body on a digital readout held in your little hand is likely to scare the devil out of you:
The devil being your terrible eating habits and aversion to exercise.
