These are common symptoms of low blood sugar issues; so balancing blood sugar is key. Eating foods low on the glycemic index regularly, at least every 3-4 hours will help. Include high quality protein foods such as whey protein (make sure it has no MSG), eggs and meats with your meals as well as adding good fats such as nuts, seeds and vegetables (avocado) will also be beneficial. Eliminating all hydrogenated fats and reducing or eliminating refined sugars such as high fructose corn syrups, sucrose and artificial sweeteners will also be beneficial. Many times blood sugar levels are normal but the symptoms persist. This is most often due to an increase of cortisol from the adrenal glands and too much stress. The cortisol levels block the glucose from being driven into the cells and although blood sugar levels are normal, the cravings for sugar still persist until the cortisol levels come down so the glucose (sugar) can be delivered to the tissues.
