Top 10 Diabetes Breakfast Mistakes To Avoid – YouTube

10 Low-Carb Breakfast Ideas for Diabetics By Christel Oerum on July 1, 2018

What to Eat for Breakfast When You Have Diabetes By Debra Manzella, RN | Medically reviewed by Richard N. Fogoros, MD Updated April 27, 2018
“..Studies have shown that eating a larger, higher fat and higher protein breakfast may actually help to reduce blood sugars and weight. The likely reason is that these types of breakfast choices are lower in carbohydrate. Some people with diabetes experience higher blood sugars in the morning because the liver breaks down sugar overnight and the cells can also be a bit more resistant to insulin at this time…

Also, studies have shown that blood sugars tend to rise after breakfast meals, two times higher than after lunch. High post prandial (after meal) blood sugars can result in carbohydrate cravings because, instead of using sugar for fuel, it is remaining in the blood stream and the body thinks it needs to eat sugar (or carbohydrates) to fuel itself. Another study found that healthy adults who consumed a standard 50 g carbohydrate (for example, 3/4 cup cereal with 1 cup milk and a 1/2 banana) meal had their highest peak glucose (sugar) after breakfast, lowest after lunch, and moderate after dinner.

Perhaps this is a good reason to try a lower carbohydrate breakfast. It’s worth a shot. So, ditch the bagels, cereal, muffins, and pancakes, and try one of these best breakfast picks.
Grilled Peanut Butter and Strawberry Sandwich

Instead of grilled cheese make a grilled peanut butter sandwich on whole grain bread. The peanut butter gets nice and gooey too which makes it delicious. Chop up a few strawberries for added fiber and sweetness. The combination of protein and fiber will help you to stay full and satisfied.


1 whole grain bread sandwich thin (make sure it has at least 3 g of fiber)
1 1/2 tablespoons all natural peanut butter
1/2 cup sliced strawberries

Diabetic? The 7 Worst (and 10 Best) Fruits You Can Eat Jess Bolluyt | More Articles

“..The Cleveland Clinic names berries one of the best foods for diabetics because they have a low glycemic index. The glycemic index measures how much a carbohydrate-containing food raises your blood glucose. But a separate measurement, called the glycemic load, does a better job of telling you a food’s real impact on your blood sugar. A glycemic load of 10 or below is low, and 20 or above is high. Watermelon, for instance, has a high glycemic index, at 80. But a serving of watermelon has few carbohydrates — just 6 grams — so its glycemic load is just 5. So some foods that are high on the glycemic index can have a low glycemic load…”
