Default Can coffee make you feel weak?

I get up and have eggs and coffee for breakfast. Then I feel like I am very weak and tired. Like I am crashing.

I know that eggs are protein and shouldn't be causing the problem. Coffee is suppose to be a stimulant. Right? So shouldn't I be feeling more energy?

I just don't get it.

I have coffee every morning. However, very often when I am off work, I will have the same thing, yet I begin to feel weak and sometimes a bit short of breath. I think it is exhaustion and stress.

Plain eggs and black coffee, alone, shouldn't be giving that reaction.

When is the last time you had your fasting glucose level checked?

Are you putting anything into the coffee that would make your blood sugar suddenly spike and then drop?

I think you might need to add a bit of carbs. Maybe a hashbrown.

Not everyone can start the day low carb.

I drink two cups of coffee with cream and have three eggs every day...But I try to stay on the low carb side.

If I feel weak I add some onion and Zucchini to my egg. Potato on occasion.

Thank you guys. I posted this on facebook too. Someone asked the same thing as HisDoulas asked. I replied honey, milk, and vanilla syrup. This person who replied there said that it was the honey and vanilla syrup. I don't know what to do to make coffee bearable to eat if I can't sweeten it.

Donna, I have been having three eggs every day with coffee. Today I had that and some gluten free bread as cinnamon toast. Anyway this is happening daily for me. Sometimes I can do more and sometimes less. Tired of being tired.

You might try Stevia. It does have a bit of an aftertaste, but it does not affect the blood sugar the way that cornsyrup and sugar do. Add real vanilla with it and see if you like it that way.

Also a dash of real cinnamon in your coffee helps to control blood sugar spikes.

It sounds like you spike when ingesting sugar and cornsyrup. Best to avoid all sugars. Even on pancakes and french toast.

Sugar is really the enemy to good health.

But I will warn you. You are going to go into sugar withdrawls when you cut out sugar.

And it is just as bad as a withdrawl from cigarettes or alcohol.

You feel nauseous, weak, shaky, grumpy, light-headed and anxious.

But once you kick it...you feel great.

Praying for you.

Thank you Donna. I wrote what you said down to try and remember when in that down and hard time ahead. I am sure that I will get those terrible headaches too. Thank you for the prayers.

Honey, our sister has given you wise counsel.

Stevia has an aftertaste that some folks do not like. Swerve is a low glycemic sugar alternative with zero carbs and zero calories and no after taste. It works well with baking also. Just use a teaspoon or less, it measures the same as sugar. Try a little butter and a dash of baking soda (like you taught me) to make your coffee alkaline.

Serena, pray against any headaches. You don't have to receive that thought.

Half decaf and half caffeinated coffee may work for you. Also a rice cake, with a little natural (no sugar added) peanut butter or a slice of cheese may help with your eggs, to stop the feeling like you're gonna "crash."
