If you’re struggling to get to sleep and swapping between browsing the fridge and Facebook – it may be worth thinking about what you had for dinner.
One of the most common causes of fatigue we see is people’s blood sugar spiking and crashing, stuck in a never-ending cycle. If you’re not getting the right balance of nutrients at the dinner table, you’re likely to find yourself hungry, irritable and snacking right into the wee hours of the morning. This means you’ll wake up not having got enough rest, and turn to high sugar foods for an energy boost – starting the cycle all over again.
If you’d like some advice on foods that will help you maintain steady blood sugar levels, pop into the pharmacy for a chat so we can figure out what your body’s specific needs are – in the meantime, try reaching for some veggies and hummus, or other snacks with a good balance of nutrients and protein to keep you full until morning.
