People who tend to have hypoglycemia obviously are not happy to see you cut back on the sugar in your diet. They should know that hypoglycemia is not caused by a lack of sugar; it is the consequence of an overreaction to excess insulin production, which causes insulin-reaction hypoglycemia or “reflex hypoglycemia”.
If sugar intake is reduced, the pancreas will secrete less insulin and, as a result, reflex hypoglycemia will not occur.
When the body is deprived of sugar, it will turn its amino acids into glucose to meet the needs of glucose-dependent tissues like the brain, red blood cells and part of the adrenal glands.
This ability to turn amino acids into glucose is called gluconeogenesis; it keeps your blood sugar level constant and sufficient during weight loss.
So why do you feel dizzy when you lose weight?
More often than not, dizziness is due to a drop in blood pressure brought on by the large amount of water your body loses.
So, remember to drink plenty of water and keep up your mineral salt intake.
