Will Eating Special K for Two Weeks Make You Skinny?
Does the idea that you should eat every two or three hours to keep blood sugar stable make sense? No, the real question is, why is your blood sugar rising and falling so much? The answers lies in what you are eating.
Cereal is a food that makes your blood sugar rapidly rise and fall, so we should try eating food that do not cause blood sugar swings in the first place. Every time your blood sugar shoots up it is signaling insulin to store fat. This cereal is advertised as a way to not blow your whole day of healthy eating by using this as a late night snack, but for most of us, that is not true. First of all, I have never seen anyone who can eat just one small serving of this kind of sugary cereal. Second, a bowl of this will probably wake you up in the middle of the night because your blood sugar will be crashing, and in the morning, you will drag yourself out of bed needing coffee and craving more sugary cereal, donuts, bread or bagels to get your day started. Does this cycle sound familiar?
Yes I love sugar, baked goods, and cereal too but I don’t like feeling like a junkie. I got off the roller coaster two years ago and I am so happy to be out of blood sugar jail. Here are some more reasons why cereal is not going to make you skinny or healthy.
