Mama Braun Posted June 21, 2013 Share Posted June 21, 2013 Hello there. I have very demanding reactive hypoglycemia. I can eat a very balanced Whole30 meal and have low blood sugar one hour to two hours after a meal. This can occur after a blood sugar spike or without one, considering the amount of carbs I eat at a meal. Though 3 meals a day are preferred for whole30, what is recommended for reactive hypoglycemics? I eat to satiety during my meals and am currently only snacking because my blood glucose levels get low enough for me to feel strange (for me that's the 80s with light-headedness, heavy body, brain fog.) I am rarely hungry, and never hungry at snack time. I just snack to get rid if the symptoms and to temporarily raise my blood sugar...because I know they'll spike and drop again after eating. Will eating 3 meals help this or is snacking a must to ensure even lower blood sugar? Am I just feeding the reactive hypoglycemia demon by snacking all the time? I'm just so nervous to quit snacking because eating relieves my symptoms instantly. But as you know with RH, the demon quickly returns and the cycle starts all over again. Anyone gone through this? Anyone with RH choose to not snack and dud your body protest or acclamate? Thank you so much. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
