One bacon , egg and cheese sandwich equaled about a 1/2 drop in my energy level.

This is not my normal routine , but , since payday was yesterday and today was trash day I stepped back into a bad habit and noticed a lot of difference.By the way on trash day we take the trash to the road and we and our two dogs, go to the local country store . They normally get a beef stick each , i usually get mixed nuts.
But , today I got a bacon ,egg , and cheese , wrap , about 20 minutes had pasted and I noticed the drop in my energy level and a little shift in my mood. In the past , i'd keep eating to try to get the energy back up , it's a losing battle , the more that is put in, the more the body has to use energy to process it .
If we listen to what our body is telling us , many of the choices that are made can be learning experiences.
The only way for me to lose weight and keep my energy up , has been through this learning process. Everyday is a good day , our choices within each one , makes the difference on how our body reacts to what we are doing..
Hopefully this may help someone else , Have a very blessed day everyone.

Hey Sam,

I am not diabetic at this point but I am extremely hypoglycemic. I was grabbing one of these from time to time, and had the same experience. A deep drop in my energy level, along with hypoglycemia symptoms. That bacon-egg-cheese wrap does taste good, doesn't it? I hated to give them up.

I love Country Stores. They have such great finds. Did you walk to the store? If so, you burned up the carbs contained in the wrap when you walked home. When I walk I carry a piece of hard candy or something low carb because based on what I have eaten before walking I may burn off before I get back home. I have noticed if I don't have a carb when walking I have little energy when I return.
