Are Eggs Good Or Bad For Diabetes?

To Egg or Not to Egg Have you ever tried a farm-fresh free range egg from a happy chicken? Never mind how to determine if a chicken is happy, the point is that these eggs are quite different from store-bought eggs. If they are free-range eggs, it is likely that the shells are a bit more fragile than from caged hens because the free-range hens are feeding on bugs, seeds, mash and corn without additives such as extra calcium and arsenic….the eggs may be brown and bumpy, but what about the nutritional differences between free-range and caged eggs? Are there any real differences? And, are eggs a healthy addition to your diet or not? Finally, can people with diabetes eat eggs? Will the eggs help or hurt people with diabetes? First things first—what are the nutritional benefits of eggs? Just One Jumbo Egg One jumbo egg contains, on average, 90 calories, with about 56 calories from fat—10% of which is saturated fat. Eggs also contain cholesterol (266mg)—but no carbohydrate and no sugar!

    I've been eating almost fully primal since the beginning of August to try to correct some health issues. Before I started my period was completely regular, a 28 day cycle with very little variation each month. My period came normally at the end of August, but my September period came 11 days late in the beginning of October, and my November period hasn't come yet. I also got cystic jawline acne right before the late period, and I don't usually get cysts.
    Is this normal? I thought eating primally is supposed to make hormones more regular, but it seems to be doing something weird to mine. My weight hasn't really changed, so I don't think that is the cause. I'm not pregnant, either.
    I eat eggs, ground beef, lamb chops and neck, chicken, canned salmon and sardines, Kerrygold butter, chard, kale, collards, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, coconut milk and oil, shredded coconut, some baker's chocolate, and berries. I will rarely have a few small Yukon golds or some white rice. Not much else. All of it is organic/free range/grass-fed/whatever. I supplement with 5000 IU of Vit. D, 30mg of zinc, 100 mcg of Selenium, and 400 mg of Magnesium.
    Am I doing something wrong here, or am I being paranoid?

    A high fat low carb diet can wreck hormonal havoc in some women. Chronic low carb(<100g/day) states can be particularly stressful for some women's bodies.
    What is your exercise like? Even though you state that your weight hasn't really changed, your post doesn't specify, but are you eating with weight loss as a goal? In some women, the "stress" alone of dieting thoughts can alter menstruation.
    Any increased stress in your life?

    I get maybe 20g of carbs from berries and probably another 20-30g from veggies per day. I don't intentionally limit them, that's just how it works out; I'm not sure how I could get more carbs in my belly without eating more potatoes and rice, as the veggies fill me up far too quickly. I'm only 94 lbs at 5'1", so weight GAIN is my goal right now. Why does low carb mess with hormones?
    My exercise is a lot of walking; I take public transportation and walk lots to get to bus stops. I also work a fairly active job part time where I'm on my feet all day and lift heavy things at least a few times each shift. Stress is very slightly more than normal, but that hasn't had any real effect on my cycle before. This is puzzling.
