Clean 9 is not likely to result in low blood sugar due to supplements containing chromium and other nutrients to boost fat metabolism. However, some individuals, due to genetics or physical condition, may find the first phase (days 1-2) too strenuous.
If you experience low blood sugar or fatigue while on the program, you should consider adding a healthy high-protein snack to your day rather than trying to stick it out under unhealthy conditions. Going too long with low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) can have immediate and long-term health effects including accidents and injuries from weakness and cognitive impairment. Signs of low blood sugar are shaky hands, faintness, and foggy brain. Operating with hypoglycemia makes you a danger to yourself and everyone around you (especially when driving).
If your physical makeup doesn’t allow you to cut as many calories as other people are able to, you should not attempt to lose weight at the risk of your personal safety. But this doesn’t mean you have to give up the program entirely. You can still enjoy the numerous benefits of Clean 9 by adding a health snack or two to your day. You may not lose as much weight in a short period, but you can still lose weight over a reasonable period of time without risking your health.
The good news is that Clean 9 will probably help to improve your overall health and blood sugar, allowing you to diet more successfully in future. [Read more…] about What if I experience low blood sugar while on Clean 9?
