If you have not been able to sustain your energy levels to the optimum lately, it is time to keep an eye on your blood sugar levels. According to nutritionist Lovneet Batra, the goal is to “keep your blood sugar stable and avoid those drastic spikes and dips that will leave you feeling starving and sluggish”.
