Here's how you use chocolate strategy to outsmart low blood sugar
1) Using Chocolate Strategy, draw on solutions you thought were out of your reach.
2) Adapt and adopt our eBook strategies to limit causes of fatigue and keep energy up.
3) Chocolate Strategy recipes balance blood sugar levels. Many common substances destabilize blood sugar. Substitute
the helpful for the hurtful.
4) Chocolate Strategy re-trains food instincts. In the process, we recognize and improve incorrect reasoning involved in
5) Athletes & Fitness seekers: find out how Chocolate Strategy is superior to other sports formulas and grab that edge!
Hint: it has to do with the way Raw Cacao is used with another phenomenal ingredient.
6) Time to opt out of the low blood sugar cycle! (low blood glucose levels cause > unpreventable cravings for
simple carbs > give in > rapid blood glucose rise > rapid blood glucose crash > repeat endlessly). Let's
break the cycle with a yummy treat or drink designed to raise blood fairly quickly then maintain a long lasting,
steady plateau with no sudden crash. Chocolate Strategy has just that!
1) Do you know the frustration of a solution being tougher than the problem it's meant to solve? Solutions for the low blood sugar problem often seem hard to
reach, even hidden. Chocolate Strategy puts elusive and difficult solutions within your reach. And how fun that process involves chocolate!
Use Chocolate Strategy to put tough solutions in your reach.
2) Adapt and adopt strategies from our eBook to keep your energy up and limit causes of fatigue. Since fatigue often provokes poor eating choices
which disrupt blood sugar levels and worsen fatigue, why not use our strategies to prevent situations known to cause fatigue. Or at least minimize them.
The eBook strategies help you prevent personal energy shortage.
4) Our intuition and our senses were marvellously designed to lead us to healthy choices. Then a dangerous thing happened.
Overstimulating food ingredients deliberately hijack and addict our senses, causing harmful substances to out-compete health building foods. Consider:
- the thousands of artificial colors, flavors and sweeteners we gobble without question
- add in the flavor enhancing (but addictive and brain-damaging) free glutamates cleverly hidden in many processed foods
- spike the addictive potential with concentrated sugars and stimulants (caffeine)
- slightly brain-washy, superbly successful marketing techniques.
So what do we do when our own instincts push us toward fake foods completely empty of any real nourishment? We find good information, we put brain
work into our food choices, we decide to be cheerfully determined, we evaluate and we persistently watch for better ideas. We decide to have fun with it.
And we find a like-minded friend to double the fun and cut the work in half.
3) Substitute Chocolate Strategy's blood sugar balancing foods for foods that destabilize blood sugar.
- The foods we've always eaten aren't the only enjoyable foods. Think changing foods to improve health will be a terrible, horrible, awful sacrifice? The
eBook recipes will be a pleasant surprise. These new chocolate ideas aren't so bad - maybe even delicious.
- Prompted by erratic blood sugar we unthinkingly give in to cravings for refined carbs, alcohol, caffeine or nicotine (yes, these drugs make the low blood
sugar cycle even more vicious). Make enough positive substitutions to create a nice break from low blood sugar's vicious circle. Taking a breather from
the addictive, harmful cycle lets us stand still long enough to ask ourselves what we truly want - and plan for it.
- Chocolate Strategy ingredients aren't a direct substitution for every harmful substance out there. But freeing ourselves from the snare of one downward
spiral creates the energy we need to pull ourselves away from others.
- When we're tired or stressed or genuinely hungry, it's easy to keep depending on the same old food choices that have always let us down. Change is
hard, no matter what blessings it brings. We have an unusal opportunity with Chocolate Strategy. In the pleasant, familiar, non-threatening context of
chocolate, we can ease ourselves through important diet changes.
5) We expect a sports formula to support exercise related nutritional needs. Most products provide at least a tiny, tiny amount of support (a sports drink
provides water). The remaining ingredients often read like a list of just about everything to avoid when you want to stay fit and healthy.
Do we really need what the "special" products offer? There is easily an accurate two page rant on each of the junk ingredients in sports formulas. But looking
at just one type of ingredient, apparently the manufacturers think lots and lots of sugar is absolutely critical to a fitness program. From Wikipedia: Major
muscles in a rested, untrained human typically contain enough energy for about 2 hours of vigorous exercise. Exhaustion of glycogen is a major cause of
what marathon runners call "hitting the wall". Training, lower intensity levels, and carbohydrate loading may allow postponement of the onset of exhaustion
beyond 4 hours.
In other words, for most of us, most of the time, exercise will not deplete blood sugar levels. But if it does, Chocolate Strategy shows you how to customize a
So why in the world would anyone want to consume a pile of highly inflammatory, metabolism busting sugars? Especially since restoring anti inflammatory
balance and improving the metabolism are priceless benefits of exercise. There's a miserably persistent misconception that if we burn off the calories in sugar,
there's no harm done. Wrong!
Please don't be fooled by any sciencey talk about which of the inflammatory, metabolism ruining sugars is best. But if you have your heart set on something
sweet, bananas are not inflammatory. Neither is unpasteurized, unheated honey. Better yet, check out our recipes.
For prolonged exercise, or for those with low blood sugar, we need a non-inflammatory sugar capable of maintaining blood sugar at a steady plateau, ideal for
sustained energy and fat burning. Chocolate Strategy recipes use perhaps the only natural sugar known to possess these spectacular characteristics.
See how Raw Cacao is used to great advantage in Chocolate Strategy athletic recipes.
6) Hypoglycemia, our most common nutritionally related health condition, catches millions of us in its vicious circle. Chocolate Strategy reverses
the vicious to victorious.
To the extent that Chocolate Strategy foods and drinks replace harmful substances, the low blood sugar vicious circle is pleasantly interrupted.
Raw Cacao is known to prevent diabetes. Full blown diabetes is often preceded by low blood sugar and / or erratic blood sugar levels. By the same means that
raw cacao prevents diabetes, in the prediabetic low blood sugar phase, raw cacao tends to help blood sugar levels be more regular. several contributing causes
food sensitivites, drug side effects, alcohol, adrenal gland deficiency (stress related or.
6) A vicious circle: without a strategy, hypoglycemia spills over into symptoms that push us to self medicate with the very things that make hypoglycemia worse.
Reversing vicious circles - exciting stuff!
Just as you use Chocolate Strategy to pull yourself up from any of a dozen or so other problems, so you can use it to balance blood sugar levels. The beneficial
phytochemicals in raw cacao plus the double positive impact our other ingredients not only do no harm but actually add to the health and weight adjusting benefit benefit
Using Chocolate Strategy you can start several positive, upward cycles which directly benefit blood sugar levels and indirectly benefit blood sugar levels by correcting other
problems which make blood sugar harder to control. (You can also take that last awkward sentence and substitute any of a dozen or so other problems for 'blood sugar",
and the sentence is still true.)

relief, but still can improve energy levels and make it easier to stay cheerful.

Although inherited DNA genes cannot be changed, the way that that genes express themselves can be altered by
individual actions, it is said.
A work out can positively affect the way cells interact with fat stored in the body, a new study published in the journal
PLOS Genetics found.
The genes have attached 'methyl groups' which affect what is known as 'gene expression'. These can be influenced in
various ways, such as exercise, diet and lifestyle.
Lead author Charlotte Ling, Associate Professor at Lund University Diabetes Centre, in Sweden, said: "Our study shows
the positive effects of exercise, because the epigenetic pattern of genes that affect fat storage in the body changes."
Researchers looked at the DNA of 23 slightly overweight but healthy men aged around 35, who didn't regularly
exercise, after attending spinning and aerobics classes for six months.
They found that changes had taken place in 7000 genes, over a third of the average total of 20,000.
A closer look revealed genes linked to diabetes and obesity, also connected to storing fat, had also been altered.
"We found changes in those genes too, which suggests that altered DNA methylation as a result of physical activity
could be one of the mechanisms of how these genes affect the risk of disease.
"This has never before been studied in fat cells. We now have a map of the DNA methylome in fat,” Professor Lind said.

Hypoglycemia Symptoms and Alternative Hypoglycemia Treatments
Low blood sugar or hypoglycemia symptoms typically worsen several hours after a meal. Scientific studies show that there’s much more to hypoglycemia symptoms and hypoglycemia
treatments than just low blood sugar. The adrenal stress hormones, adrenalin, and cortisol, are critically involved. In fact, most hypoglycemia symptoms are caused not by low blood sugar
per se, but by an over-reaction of adrenalin and cortisol discharge—part of the body’s defense against blood sugar falling too low. A broad holistic approach to hypoglycemia treatments
provides the best results.
Potential Hypoglycemia Symptoms
Feeling hungry or needing to eat very often
Feeling anxious or nervous
Feeling light headed or foggy
Sweating, palpitations or rapid heart
Anxiety and/or depression
Hyperventilation or shortness of breath
Migraine and Tension Headache

Diet-induced Hypoglycemia Symptoms Versus Hypoglycemia Symptoms Due to Diabetes
Too much insulin or oral medicine for diabetes can drive blood sugar (glucose) down too low. Dietary hypoglycemia symptoms trigger by a different path. Normally after eating, blood sugar
(glucose) rises. Then the pancreatic hormone, insulin, kicks–in, driving blood sugar back down. The low point or nadir of the blood sugar curve occurs three or four hours after eating.
adrenal glands and hypoglycemiaAt the low blood sugar nadir, the adrenal glands fire–off modest amounts of two anti–hypoglycemia hormones, adrenalin/epinephrine and cortisol. These
anti–hypoglycemia hormones promptly drive blood sugar levels back up, in effect, a natural hypoglycemia treatment. No hypoglycemia symptoms occur.
In contrast, people with diet–induced hypoglycemia are primed so their hypoglycemia–regulating hormones tend to overreact. As blood sugar rises after eating, the pancreas overshoots,
firing too much insulin. This drives blood sugar down faster and further than it should. As blood sugar falls the adrenal glands “recognize” the need for an emergency hypoglycemia
treatment to block blood sugar from crashing. The adrenals discharge massive amounts of adrenalin and cortisol. This drives blood sugar back up. Adrenalin can cause all the hypoglycemia
symptoms listed above. Cortisone causes fatigue, anxiety, hunger and depression. This critical role of adrenalin and cortisol for hypoglycemia symptoms was proven by researchers at the
National Institutes way back in 1984.
