Yesterday I stumbled across a fascinating article in Psychology Today magazine. Happily, the brief feature is also available it its online version. You can read about the link between blood sugar and aggression and crime rates here. The correlation presented relates really well to what I reflected on in my book’s dedication.
GAPS and similar programs resolve blood sugar imbalances. Intro’s focus on meat, fats and veggies does wonders for many. If blood sugar is an issue for you, be sure to eat fat and protein as often as necessary (ie. to feel good): upon waking, every hour or so throughout the day, before bed. Sipping an electrolyte drink throughout the day can also help. These measures support the body while it sorts everything out for longer term balance, at which point a few fatty, protein-rich, low sugar meals each day will do the trick.
