This Egg-Actly What Diabetics Need to Know
Scrambled, poached or sunny side up — eating eggs flips refined grains off the plate according to a recent randomised, controlled trial. Thirty-four type 2 diabetics were recommended to either consume two eggs daily or to avoid eggs for 12 weeks, while tracking daily dietary habits. Eating eggs was found to reduce consumption of (higher glycaemic) refined grains and improve overall protein intake and are a delicious way for patients to bolster nutrition, support healthy blood glucose levels and reap metabolic rewards.
