I've been feeling really weak lately and very tired. Haven't been able to stop myself falling asleep and I've been feeling on the verge of collapse with the weakness. Only one thing seems to help: chocolate, or anything else with a massive amount of sugar in it! I don't crave sugary foods but I have had them recently because I feel like there's no energy in me at all and I was wondering if it might help. For a few hours after the chocolate I'm able to get on with my life, feeling almost normal (but not exactly bouncing off the walls!) until my energy levels fall again and I go really weak all over like I can't lift my arms again.
I know my blood sugar levels are fine because my doctor recently tested them, and I'd rather not be scoffing chocolate every day as previously my diet was healthy and I only ate chocolate once or twice a week. Does anyone know why this would happen? Is it just a placebo effect because I'm thinking this will give me energy? I've noticed bananas don't work in the same way! Just want to be able to achieve the same effect without scoffing sweets!
