Diabetics Are Better Off Starting Their Day With an Omelet


  • Diabetics Are Better Off Starting Their Day With an Omelet

    A low-carb breakfast helps reduce fluctuations in blood glucose levels throughout the day.

    After breakfast, blood sugar rises sharply, because cereals, toast, and fruits are often eaten for breakfast. (Someone will say that they have breakfast with fried chicken, sausages, or cutlets, but the fashion now is still for cereal and fruit breakfasts.)

    But cereals and fruits have a lot of carbohydrates, and that’s a “sugar splash” in the blood. For a diabetic patient, it is better not to allow such surges in sugar.

    Eggs for breakfast help keep sugar levels in check.

    The obvious way out here is to change the breakfast menu.

    Researchers from the University of British Columbia set up an experiment with a group of patients with type 2 diabetes (type 2 diabetes is when tissues lose their sensitivity to insulin and stop absorbing glucose from the blood, which is why it is also called non-insulin dependent diabetes).

    On the first day, all participants in the experiment ate an omelet for breakfast, on the second day - oatmeal and fruit.

    Lunch and dinner on the first day and on the second were the same. Glucose levels were measured with a device attached to the abdomen and taken every five minutes.

    In addition, the test subjects themselves had to report how hungry they felt, how much they had eaten, and whether they would like to eat something else after eating.

    Blood sugar did not rise as much after omelette as after cereal with fruit.

    But most importantly, the glucose level after the omelet for breakfast remained stable throughout the day.

    That is, after a carbohydrate breakfast at each subsequent meal, the body coped worse with an increase in blood sugar, but a protein-fat breakfast (in which there were no more than 10% carbohydrates) helped keep sugar under control.

    Not that the total glucose level decreased at the same time, it just did not change very much - namely, strong fluctuations in sugar, according to the authors of the work, harm the kidneys, eyes, and blood vessels of patients with diabetes.

    In addition, after an egg breakfast, a person came to lunch and dinner not as hungry as after a breakfast of porridge with fruits, and the desire to eat something else sweet after eating also decreased.

    Obviously, a low-carb breakfast is actually a fairly simple and effective way to help a person with diabetes keep their metabolism relatively calm.

      Well, let's understand what or who is to blame and what to do about it.

      1. The first reason why we experience a constant feeling of hunger is insulin resistance (IR) and constant snacking

      It turns out such a vicious circle, where constant snacking generates IR, and because of it all the time you want something to eat.

    • Low-carb Diet Without Limiting Fat: Scientific Evidence of Benefit
      by Niki Rogers

      Low-carb diets have repeatedly outperformed low-fat diets in all indicators. Therefore, we were not surprised by the results of a new study published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine.

      Its results once again confirm what we are constantly writing about: a serious restriction of carbohydrates in the diet (without limiting fat and total calories) leads not only to weight loss but also to a reduction in the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

      The diet of a prehistoric man, a hunter and gatherer, had much more protein and much fewer carbohydrates than the diet of an ordinary modern man. Yes, our forefathers did not grow grain, did not make flour and did not cook cereals. And, of course, they didn't have any fat-free products.

      I wonder what served as a source of protein for an ancient man. Among other things, they ate insects, which many peoples feed on to this day, and slugs.

      Even more annoying, there is less muscle and more fatty tissue. Between the ages of 30 and 60, the average person annually loses 0.5 lbs (0.23 kg) of muscle and instead
