Sorry Neal I will have to completely disagree.
The body has no means to discern which part of the brain gets the sugar and
which does not (either when your sugar is on the way down or on the way back
up). Complicating this even more is that the body doesn't know when the
sugar will become available. As such there is no way that you can conclude
that because one part of the brain is functioning (in this case the
"communicating" part) that another part should be as well (in this case the
decision-making part of the brain). Because the brain is compromised, an
individual will need to resort to a combination of other memory techniques
(eg muscle-memory or practice).
Finally, food products that have a high glycemic index are broadly
recommended to treat hypoglycemic events. Beans have a high glycemic index
and thus would be an excellent choice..
I apologize if I am offending you, but I believe that your logic and your
conclusions are seriously flawed.
