What exactly are you eating along with those B-vitamins?
This is news to me.
Something is spiking your blood sugar (When it drops suddenly, you feel hungry.)
I've been feeling a bit fatigued lately and thought taking a B-complex might help, so yesterday morning I took this one. Problem is, I started feeling ravenously hungry halfway through the morning, and again at night. And it only helped my energy level for maybe 2 hours early in the morning - after that I felt like I'd "crashed" and was tired the rest of the day.
Any ideas why?
Concentration improved a lot when I started doing that too.
I think I found the answer to the B vitamin mystery:
"Anyone suffering from low blood sugar episodes should avoid larger amounts of Vitamin B6 and C, which can cause blood sugar to drop even more."
"Unless someone is certain that they exhibit a chemical profile which would benefit from a higher B-complex intake, I would personally stay on the safe side and not exceed a 10 -15mg range."
And here I was taking 100+ mg/mcg of the stuff, as my multi-vitamin has some in it too! Won't be doing that again...
Cool. Thanks. Did you only experience cravings, or did you get the dizziness, fuzzy thought, rotten temper and tunnel vision package as well? Because I got the whole schmear.
Good to hear you found out what it was, Katy.... else I was starting to think you were pregnant...

You might want to watch your blood sugar when you do - even women with no sugar issues are known to get gestational diabetes.
I think B-vitamins jump start your metabolism...kind of like exercise does. And like a heavy work out, you feel great immediately afterwards, then pass out a lil bit later. At least I do.
