Imagine this: You're sitting on your couch, munching on a delicious doughnut, and suddenly, you feel a surge of energy. Minutes later, you're crashing, feeling sluggish and foggy-headed. Sound familiar? That's a glucose spike, followed by the inevitable crash. It's a common experience, but did you know that consistently spiking your glucose levels can have long-term consequences on your health?
Sugar is present in an incredible number of the foods we eat, even ones we might not suspect, like salad dressing and bread. It has become such a normal part of our modern diet that it is hard to avoid. Because it's so hard to avoid, it's also really hard to give up, or even moderate effectively.
