A quick hit of sugar for a quick energy hit sounds like a great idea, until it’s not. Here's the 411 – when we OD on sweets, our bodies release too much insulin, removing more sugar than they need to from our bloodstream – causing a very loud sugar crash. Nutritionist Katherine Hay's advice? Avoid at all costs.
Self-care tip for cbf babes:
Don’t feel bad for saying no to a social outing. If you’re not feeling up for it, there’s no need to exert and deplete your personal energy on something you may not even be present in. There’s no shame in saying no and staying in, chucking on a face mask and watching some trash tv. Have yourself a JOMO moment.
If you’re getting weird in the tummy for ditching your friend, make sure to offer an alternative to your meet up, that way they’ll know you appreciate them.
