A study has shown that by including egg in breakfast, a person can reduce the blood sugar level and prevent diabetes. According to the finding of the study, people following low carbohydrate and high fat (LCBF) diet during breakfast can keep their blood sugar level in check throughout the day.
In the study published in the ‘American Journal of Clinical Nutrition’, the author Jonathan Little says that the reason for the increase in the blood sugar level is the intake of carbohydrate-rich foods for breakfast. Eating egg provides a fat-rich diet that controls blood sugar level.
In other words, a high fat, low carbohydrate diet during breakfast reduces the chances for the incidence of diabetes. This helps keep the glucose level in the body in check. Little’s study proves that the blood sugar level of people who took a breakfast rich in fat and low in carbohydrates did not increase throughout the day.
It is felt that such a diet would benefit even those who do not suffer from diabetes.
