Why Are Low Blood Sugar Levels Dangerous

Why Am I Addicted To Orange Juice?

Orange juice is the highest glycemic fruit juice and raises your blood sugar levels quickly and significantly. I recommend having your physician test you for hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) conditions. It could be that your body is naturally craving the sugar because of a medical condition. That being said, it is also very possible that you are simply addicted to sugar, and the affects that a high blood sugar level has on your body and/or mental state. If that is the case, a rapid and sustained jump in your blood sugar level can be very dangerous - it can cause seizures, development of diabetes, coma, and even death. Please see your doctor as soon as possible. Until then, be sure that you are at least drinking 100% juice with no added sugar. The fructose from the oranges is at least somewhat healthier for your body than corn syrup. Also, keep in mind that a single serving (8 ounces, or 1 cup) of orange juice contains 100% daily value of vitamin C. Ingesting high levels of vitamin C can lead to calcification and the development of kidney stones. Hope this helps! Blessings, Ima Continue reading >>

    Muslims probably have a degree of ketosis from fasting for a month of Ramadan and they seem to do OK. Generally, ketones rise when you force your body to burn fats as an alternate source of energy. It is just not as efficient as clean burning GLUCOSE … our main energy source. The byproducts of using fats for energy are ketones (acetone) and acids (beta-hydroxybutyric acid and acetoacetic acid). If you are in firm grasp of what you are doing this for (body sculpting or puke and purge party for the play about the Holocaust or marathon training) then a short lived trip to Ketosis Land might be all right. IF YOU ARE DOING THIS BECAUSE YOUR MIND CAN SEE ONLY A FAT PIG IN THE MIRROR … get some help … My favorite singer of the past century, Karen Carpenter, died from anorexia … and my life lost some of it’s luster at her passing.
