Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. That’s why in this video, we’ll unveil the 5 best and worst breakfast foods for diabetics.
The 5 Worst Breakfast Foods
5. Sugary Cereals
Many kinds of cereal are like candy. They are packed with sugars and simple carbs.
They may give you an energy burst, but this will be followed by a blood sugar crash later on, leading to feelings of sluggishness and brain fog.
4. Bagels and Cream Cheese
Your average bagel contains around 50 grams of carbohydrate and not much protein.
While cream cheese is lower in salt than some cheeses, it also got a decent amount of saturated fat, so not an ideal daily breakfast choice.
3. Bacon and Sausage
The problem with these processed meats is that they are high in sodium and saturated fats. In fact, research has linked meat-heavy diets to a number of diseases including diabetes, colorectal cancer, and kidney disease.
2. Traditional Pancakes and Syrup
Traditional pancakes are high in carbs and low in fiber.
Meanwhile, the syrup is around two-thirds sugar, with very little nutrition!
1. “Healthy” Foods That Are Actually Unhealthy
Sweetened yogurts, fruit juice, fruit smoothies, and breakfast bars – these add unneeded sugars and carbs that increase your blood sugar too much.
The 5 of the Healthiest Breakfasts for Diabetics
Eggs are great for a diabetic as a good source of potassium, biotin, protein as well as a variety of important vitamins and minerals.
Oatmeal is a filling meal, with fiber, protein, and vitamins and minerals too.
3. Whole Grains
Whole grains use all the nutrient and fiber-rich parts of the grain. They have more nutrients and fiber, keeping you full and not raising your blood sugar.
Most fruits are low on the glycemic index as well, which means they’re good to go. These are great sources of fiber and vitamins and are rich in antioxidants.
1. Greek Yogurt and Cottage Cheese
These are quite similar, so we’re adding them together.
Ultimately, Greek yogurt is better, having slightly fewer calories and sodium. Cottage cheese is also high in protein and healthy fats.

For a start BREAKFAST is not the most important meal of the day…it should be taken between 12:00pm-4:00pm and should be the only meal you have.
Nothing is free in life haven’t you figured that out yet
