All diabetics, type one and type two diabetes are aware of the importance of choosing the right foods. And eating the right foods
makes a difference in relation to another important aspect of diabetes … sugar in the blood. But just to choose the right
foods is not NOK. You must have a timetable in place for meals consumed. The problem is that some diabetics find it okay to
skip a meal occasionally. In reality nothing could be further from the truth.
In a society where body image is everything, it is common practice for people to skip meals as a means to maintain or even
trying to lose weight. Many have the misconception that skipping meals allowed to stay healthy. After all, if you skip a
meal, calories consumed and calories are bad, right?
While a non-diabetic may get away with this kind of logic, without serious consequences, is a dangerous situation for a
diabetic. The worst that can happen to a diabetic is so hungry. The worst that can happen to a diabetic hypoglycemic shock
and possibly coma. Not exactly the same.
Imagine a fire While feeding an energy source of the wood is still alive and intense. By submitting its own energy … heat.
But stop feeding the fire, and finally, its intensity is reduced, reduce the heat quickly and completely clogged.
The body of a diabetic is like fire. As long as it feeds a power source, which is the food, it will continue to burn
efficiently. But when the power supply is interrupted, such as skipping meals, your body’s energy is drastically reduced to a
dangerously low level.
If the fire goes out, just start again with more wood. But when a diabetic skip meals, your blood sugar levels drop and place
them in such a state of physical deterioration, it is very difficult and sometimes impossible for them to fix the problem
yourself. The longest without eating these symptoms are worse. This is a very dangerous situation for diabetics to put in. So
why do this to themselves on purpose?
Skipping meals is no joke: It puts tremendous pressure on a fragile part of the system. Even when not done intentionally, the
result is the same. It is important to always be prepared to have something on hand for a meal.
Another concern is the belief skipped a meal can be restored: this is not true. When food is passed, it is gone forever.
Trying to over-compensate for their next meal, in an attempt to compensate for the lost, put your blood sugar on a
roller-coaster effect. First, the blood sugar crash from lack of food and going to get every bit of food you can on the
system simultaneously. Remember the fire to feed a constant supply.
Meal planning includes snacks, too: These are necessary to keep blood sugar steady between meals. There will be days when
it’s time for a snack and you’re just not hungry. Do not let your stomach will determine if you or a snack. The stomach is
not in control of blood sugar. Skip a scheduled meal or snack and sugar in the blood can remember.
Remember to be prepared, if not a meal or snack, you must have good food on hand. This will eliminate the need and the
temptation to go with an easy choice, in good health.
