QUESTION: I'm borderline diabetic/hypoglycemic . . . I have issues maintaining my blood sugar and have the shakes a lot.
I'm starting to train for my first show; are there any diet dos or don'ts that I need to follow or know of that would be special for my blood sugar issues or should I be a-ok following a fairly normal eating plan like everyone else?
DP: When you follow a high protein/moderate fat/low carb diet, your blood sugars will never fall too low (go hypo) because your brain will be using ketones (fat) for fuel rather than carbs (glucose)
