๐Ÿญ- I used to buy into the โ€˜fasted workoutโ€™ craze. What I DIDNโ€™T know was the blood sugar rollercoaster I was sending my body on. ๐ŸŽข

Over-exercising and under-eating can actually ๐—œ๐—ก๐—–๐—ฅ๐—˜๐—”๐—ฆ๐—˜ ๐—•๐—˜๐—Ÿ๐—Ÿ๐—ฌ ๐—™๐—”๐—ง stores. Your liver stores up enough sugar to last 8 hours (or one nightโ€™s sleep) before it starts to burn the sugar stored in your muscles for fuel (if you have enough which most women do NOT)โ€ฆ

THEN your body turns to burning YOUR muscle for fuel. Yeahโ€ฆ so much for getting toned. #eatsomething

๐Ÿฎ- I did keto several years ago thinking I was doing my body good! ๐Ÿ˜ซ (***disclaimer in the right medical situation this type of diet may be necessary)

What I didnโ€™t know is how depleting your body of carbs sends your cortisol levels THROUGH the roof (aka the stress hormone) which makes your body think something is wrong or you are in dangerโ€ฆ

Try incorporating sweet potatoes, brown rice, and other complex carbs into your day but always pair with a protein + healthy fat source to stabilize blood sugar.

Once again this sends your blood sugar on a roller coaster, disrupts your hormones, and increases (you guessed it) ๐—–๐—ข๐—ฅ๐—ง๐—œ๐—ฆ๐—ข๐—Ÿ.

Eating every 2-3 hours, within 30 minutes of waking, and a bedtime snack will help balance your sugar levels.
