If you are feeling stressed stay far away from sugar! According to DailyMail.com, “'Refined sugar and processed foods release sugar into the body too quickly,' says James Duigan, A-List personal trainer and author of the Clean And Lean low-sugar diet. ‘This increases the amount of insulin, which convinces our bodies to store fat rather than burn it, and alters our blood sugar levels. Can cause mood swings: Refined sugar and processed foods release sugar into the body too quickly 'The more uneven our blood sugar levels; the more uneven our moods - we get hungry, angry, depressed and upset and can't think clearly. Eating something high in sugar turns this back again - temporarily. But this soon gives way to a crash, when we feel panicky and wired. 'The more your blood sugar levels fluctuate, the more likely you are to react badly to life's stresses. And your reliance upon sugar becomes a trap.'”
