Diabetes Diet : The Much Maligned Egg Makes A Comeback

The recently revised U.S. Dietary Guidelines now reflect what some researchers have been saying for years, that the nutrient cholesterol is not a threat to our health.
Since cholesterol is no longer a dietary villain, neither are cholesterol rich foods such as the egg. Yet, after being told for decades to limit egg consumption, some of us - especially those at higher risk for cardiovascular disease - may remain skeptical about eating more of them.
An Egg-cellent Test
An interesting study involving overweight and obese people with type 2 or pre-diabetes might help skeptics rethink the role of eggs in their diet.
Some of the research participants, those in the high-egg group, were instructed to eat 12 eggs per week, increasing their cholesterol intake by 281 milligrams daily. The participants in the low-egg group were asked to eat fewer than two eggs each week, reducing their daily intake of cholesterol.
Both groups consumed the same amount of protein weekly, and in the end:
The high-egg folks reported less hunger and a greater sense of satisfaction following breakfast.
The increased cholesterol consumption had no ill-effect on the high-egg participants’ lipid profile.
“No between-group differences were shown for total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, triglycerides, or glycemic control,” noted the researchers in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. “This study suggests that a high-egg diet can be included safely as part of the dietary management of type 2 diabetes, and it may provide greater satiety.”

3 Juices That Help Diabetics

3 Juices That Help Diabetics

The reason why diabetics are advised to avoid having fruit juice is because conventional fruit juice is stripped of the fruit's fiber and left with its concentrated natural sugar. However, this is a result of a bad juicing practice which should be obsoleted with a more healthy juicing technique.
There are two key facors to making a healthy and balanced juice. Firstly, focus less on fruits but on vegetables. Fruits should no longer be the main ingredients in a juice but used sparingly for its flavor and sweetness. Secondly, blend instead of juice, or in other words, make a smoothie instead so that the fibers of the fruits and vegetables used are retained in the drink.
Here are 3 juice recipes that are beneficial for diabetics...

Do Artificial Sweeteners and Diabetes Mix?

Do Artificial Sweeteners and Diabetes Mix?

A Look at Your Options for Keeping Life Sweet
Are you craving a Pepsi? Wishing you could have a box of chocolates from your sweetheart? It’s so hard to go through life with a sweet tooth when you’re diabetic.
There are, however, some options to help make life a little sweeter while not making your blood sugars sky rocket.
Artificial sweeteners are one option to help you to feel satisfied with a “treat” but not overload on sugars and carbohydrates. Artificial sweeteners are at least 100 times stronger than actual sugar, so very little is needed to create that sweet flavor you are craving.
They are also typically considered a “free food” with no effect on blood sugar. But, just because a product states that it is “sugar-free,” “no sugar added,” or “reduced sugar,” it does NOT mean it has no or low carbs.
It’s important that you always read the nutrition label before deciding on what to eat.
Basic Types of Non-Sugar Sweeteners
There are six sweeteners currently approved by the FDA:
Acesulfame potassium, also called acesulfame K (Sweet One, Sunett)
Aspartame (Equal, NutraSweet, Sugar Twin)
Saccharin (Necta Sweet, Sweet’N Low, Sweet Twin)
Sucralose (Splenda)
Neotame (Newtame)
Advantame
Stevia (Sweet Leaf, PureVia, Stevia in the Raw, Truvia) is one of the newest sweeteners, and it has been rated GRAS (generally recognized as safe) by the FDA, so it does not need FDA approval as a food additive. Many people prefer it, as it is a natural sweetener derived from the leaves of the stevia plant.
