I finally realized something today

I know this seems like a stupid thread, but or a while I was feeling down a lot, but then I realized what was this tonight when I was eating rice pudding tonight, which contains plenty of sugar...Sugar brings me down after i consume it..I think i'm really going to cut down on it, since it doesn't make me feel good inside.

Isn't sugar supposed to make you feel exited and happy? Maybe you're different.

Well, it gives you some energy at first (and a high), but after the effect wears off the fall (in blood sugar) is even deeper. So cut off that sugar.

It's similar to nicotine - people say they smoke to calm themselves down. In reality nicotine pushes up you heart rate and the 'calming down part' just happens after the nicotine wears off.

That are just brief explanations of the mechanisms involved.
