The body therefore has to cope with this excessive sugar load by other mechanisms. To maintain this we need a certain amount of insulin, which in case of diabetic people is not produced in the body. If you only follow a diet 5 days a week, you will have a very difficult time losing or maintaining your weight at normal levels as well as controlling your sugar. For example, if the blood sugar level falls too low, energy supply to all tissues, particularly the brain, is impaired; and if blood sugar levels rise too high this is very damaging to arteries and the long term effect of arterial disease is heart disease and strokes.
