Low Blood Sugar Question

I wasn't sure where to post this as I am not doing a water fast but I am also not doing a juice fast. I am consuming nothing but water, herbal tea, and clear vegetable broth. Today is my third day and I woke up feeling a bit dizzy, weak, and with heart racing. I checked my blood sugar and it is down to 51. Is this normal and something that will eventually get better or should I consume some juice or something to bring it up?

In other words, if I continue with just water/tea/broth, will my body self-regulate and bring the blood sugar up on its own?

Note: Today is actually my 5th day but I posted the above on the water fasting forum first. I had some juice to bring up my blood sugar up, but I would prefer to stick with water and clear broth only.

Normal blood sugar varies from 2.5 to 7.5 millimols per litre, so unfortunately I don't quite understand the "51"..

In my experience a limited diet (like what you follow) is considerably more difficult than a fast. Your body receives the message that you eat (taste) but not the amount of carbohydrates it usually associates with that amount of taste. Thus the reserve energy (fat) is left largely untapped, which could leave you tired.

Also bear in mind that any breakdown of fat (whether through fasting, dieting or excess exercise) causes the release of toxins from the fat. That's why the detoxification cycles are such an important and integral part of the process.

Once you burn fat fast enough, you become blood sugar independent; I have measured levels too low for the standard machines to measure, yet the patients were quite energetic.. once again I believe what you experience has more to do with the presence of toxins than the absence of blood sugar.

Please keep us posted.

normal values for blood glucose in the U.S. are between 80-100, so I think our number system is different here.
