Foods to Avoid if You’re Hypoglycemic
Part of the Hypoglycemia For Dummies Cheat Sheet
Controlling low blood sugar, or hypoglycemia, is easier if you just say no to foods that can throw your blood glucose levels out of whack. The following list of foods and food groups are those to avoid:
MSG (monosodium glutamate)
All soft drinks
Artificial sweeteners such as aspartame (NutraSweet), sucralose (Splenda), and saccharine (Sweet’n Low)
Hot dogs, sausages, and deli meats
Having arguments or debates or discussing unpleasant topics while you’re eating can affect your blood sugar as much as the foods you eat. So save the tough talks for a later (or earlier) time.
