Answer
HI Sal; Datta,

If you want to achieve the best in your life it is essential that you have a good self-image. Having a low self-esteem may hamper your achievements.. But a low self-esteem is not always what it seems to be: a psychological matter. Sometimes we have a low self-esteem because the body is not producing feel-good neurotransmitters due to an unacknowledged inner metabolic flaw, such as hypoglycemia. (http://www.hypoglycemia.asn.au/2011/what-is-hypoglycemia/).
In other words you need to have a healthy body to produce the right hormones and biochemicals to feel good about yourself.

One effect of hypoglycemia is the over-production of stress hormones. These may cause symptoms of mood disorders, such as anxiety, low self-esteem and depression and so on. Please read:

Depression is a Nutritional Disorder

Once you adopt the hypoglycemic diet, you will start to feel better about yourself.
