Do you crave sugar in the form of sweets, fizzy drinks and general junk food? Do you crave chocolate?
It may be that you were not born with a “sweet tooth” at all. In fact, it’s most likely down to inefficient insulin production and transport inside your body.
Here are some more symptoms:
– Unexplainable thirst
– Frequent urination
– Hunger even after just eating
– Unexplainable fatigue
– Dark skin patches around the neck & chest area
– High blood pressure
– Lack of motivation
– Mood swings
– Insomnia and/of disturbed sleep
– Feeling tired even after a full night’s sleep
If most of your symptoms are on the top half of that list then you are deficient in chromium. Supplement 20mcg/day and the problems will go away. If you are in the second half you need magnesium. Take 500-750mg every night before bed.
For profession medical information and a more in depth understand of insulin resistance there is a great article written by Melissa Conrad Stoppler, MD.
