8 Myths & Truths Of Dieting

Here’s a statistic for you to ponder. According to the latest national figures, well over 55% of Britains are now considered overweight or obese compared with 33% in the 1980s. Yet another scary statistic: childhood obesity has rocketed by an incredible 100% between the early 1980s and the present day. Don't believe me? Just take a look at your neighbour’s children -- or even your own -- and instantly you will notice a bit of plumpness around their girth.

Some symptoms of hypoglycemia are: fatigue, dizziness, light-headedness, headache, irritability, fainting spells, depression, anxiety, cravings for sweets, confusion, night sweats, constant hunger, etc., etc.. (sound like anyone you know : ) It sounds like everyone I know! I am convinced that if you do not have diabetes, you have (to a certain degree) hypoglycemia. 
Hypoglycemia is a pre-cursor to diabetes. I feel the reason for this problem is largely due to poor dietary habits that include eating large amounts of simple carbohydrates, sugars, caffeine, and soft drinks. And, not enough complex carbohydrates.... fruits, veggies, whole-grains, etc. You need to get it under control before it becomes a more serious problem. And, I know from personal experience tha…
