Having too much sugar does not directly cause a person to have diabetes but rather it is a bodily dysfunction. Diabetes is a disease characterized by the body’s inability to properly process blood glucose. This metabolic disease causes blood sugar to spike resulting in an array of signs and symptoms that aren’t ideal for homeostatic well-being.
Each person has an individual sugar tolerance level but especially for diabetics, it needs to be toned down and kept in check. We all love a good treat but as all things are, even too much of a good thing can be bad for you.
You can help yourself avoid the pains of this disease by keeping to a proper diet and lifestyle. One of the best meal buddies a diabetic can have is none other than eggs. It helps by being a low-carb source of protein.
It is one of the easiest and most accessible food one can have in their diet. It is so easy to prepare and has a lot of nutrients one needs that it is worth that tiny effort to obtain and include in everyday meals.
The most healthy way to have the egg is to have it hard-boiled, poached or scrambled. With either of these three, the manner of preparation entails the least amount of additives ensuring that you have a full stomach without totally compromising your blood sugar levels.
“Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down” has been a long-time, coined term by Mary Poppins, although a well-meaning good-natured lady that she is, this advice and also a good array of marketing sugar through broadcasting and keeping a steady availability of supply in the market has probably led to some inappropriate sugar intake habits.
The good news is these days a lot of people are picking up healthy lifestyle habits and are choosing to forego the taste and opt for well being instead. Health is in and that’s probably the best trend we can ride on at any given time. We should always remember to utilize the best resources we have in order to say NO to diabetes. An egg a day keeps the insulin at bay.
