Well, the bad news is that when you eat some, it causes you to just crave more later.
Being hypo means that you need more protein, and to eat more regularlily. If you crave sugar, try to eat protein first. Then see if you still crave any sugar. I keep a bag of nuts in the car, in my bag, in my bedroom, in the kithcen- etc.
I think Dr Sears 's nutrition book has really good and easy explanations of why people crave things, and what ahppens when you eat diff. stuff chemically in you body. I also like Dr. Weil. Both have websites.
I want to stress the importance of being sugar free and being hypo or hyper glycemic. In general, the condition will just get worse the more sugar you eat, the longer. It can become even more dibilitating than, I am sure, it already is.
While you are weanign, try eating fruits, and dried fruits to curb the cravings. Its still sugar, but better for you. Also, when drinking juice, drink juice that doesnt have sugar, and comes with the pulp. The pulp helps slow down the sugar absorption in your bloodstream.
