After nearly four weeks of eating primal, I had a bad hypoglycemic incident yesterday. I've never had one before, and I'm not (and never have been) diabetic. But after a day of not so many calories following a few nights of heavy-ish drinking (I was at a conference) I got to the airport and was nauseous, dizzy, light headed and certain I was about to black out. Took care of it with a bottle of apple juice over the course of about an hour, and then after ate some cheese and crackers (I was on a plane, and it didn't seem to make sense to be picky). So, clearly the drinking is the main culprit. But I've never had this experience before, and since the drinking is certainly not new, it seems the diet is a factor. Has anyone else experienced this? Do I need to eat some fruit to get more sugar? (I've been avoiding fruit for weight loss) Do I need to be counting calories? I hadn't eaten much that day, but I wasn't hungry. Clearly cutting way back on the wine is the first thing I'll be doing.
