I recently watched a show on the balance between trying to live healthy, and mental health. In particular, they had a panel where a number of people had started out by changing their diet and exercising more, all in the name originally of health and fitness, but this spiralled and for most of them ended in serious mental health conditions and eating disorders.
It resonated with me strongly, as I’ve often found in a quest to optimise my blood sugars I’m potentially sacrificing my mental well being.
Do others face this struggle? Is it worth sacrificing some control over your blood glucose to improve your mental well- being?
What strategies to people have in place to deal with these?
