    my aim is to be able to enjoy the primal diet - i love choc and red wine and fruit.
    Cress, what is your current fat intake?

    Primal does NOT equate to low carb.

    Please know that chocolate and red wine are not particularly primal other than as occasional treats. Fruit you should be able to have every day once you get things worked out.

    No, not feeling like you were gonna fall over, but struggling to stay conscious. Wheat bread doesn't fix blood sugar that low (hell you gotta worry about people being able to swallow properly at that low), honey and direct sugars (like non diet cordial and fizzy drinks) do and then something like a longer lasting (more slowly digested carb) to keep it up.

    You also know primal is gluten free (no wheat)?

    If your body is kicking back fruit, something which every human ancestor ate and thrived on, you need to be looking somewhere else entirely. That is NOT normal.
    In a normal system there is no reason why sugar, high or low, would be causing a symptom like that.
    I can't eat fruit either, haven't been able to for years. Even one berry sends my blood sugar skyrocketing. And for the record, I'm not diabetic, have a thin build, but if I ate fruit every day I'd be obese within a week.

    I'm having similar issues..I crave fruit all day long. But if I eat it, forget it...let the binging and sugar crash begin. I don't understand why.

    The definition of reactive hypoglycemia is a drop of more than 100 points in the US measuring system in less than an hour. If you have reactive hypoglycemia, you have to have the spike to have the drop. If you have reactive hypoglycemia, you need to cut down the carbs you are getting. So the next time you have a reactive hypoglycemia incident, add up the carbs in the meal that caused it. Now you know you CAN'T have that much in one sitting. Start dropping it by 10 or 15% until you don't have the reaction and you will know what you can eat in one sitting.

    Now true, not all carbs are alike and low glycemic index foods will help, but that's it in a nutshell.

    Or you can save yourself the complication and frustration by simply cutting out what your body is telling you not to eat. I just think that's the way to go for some people. My mom for instance will buy a subway sandwich, take two bites with the bread, eat out the meat and cheese and throw the rest of the bread away since she knows any more of it will make her fat. She'd be better off ordering a salad.
