For decades, mainstream media has demonized foods like eggs and meats, claiming they cause all sorts of metabolic diseases. The truth is, they were wrong all along, and the science has consistently shown that in recent years (although pasture-raised is the most important choice for max health benefits).
But let’s take a look at something even more specific in today’s email… the relationship between eggs and diabetes…
A study performed at The University of Eastern Finland, and published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition studied the diets of men aged 42 to 60, and followed them for 20 years on average to find out if they developed diabetes. The study concluded that people who ate an average of 4 eggs per week had a 37% lower risk of developing Type 2 diabetes compared to people that only ate 1 egg per week (Hmm, I wonder how much lower the diabetes risk would have been for people eating 10-20 eggs per week!)…
They also concluded that egg eaters had lower blood sugar levels on average. As a health researcher, this doesn’t surprise me at all… eggs are almost a perfect food (especially if they’re pasture-raised), and are loaded with appetite-controlling protein, a plethora of vitamins & minerals, powerful antioxidants, healthy cholesterol and saturated fats (yes, HEALTHY fats!), and other nutrients that all help to benefit your hormones and control blood sugar levels.
In fact, other studies have shown that people that eat eggs for breakfast (instead of carb-based breakfasts like cereals, muffins, or bagels), have reduced appetite levels for the remainder of the day, and less cravings for sugar and carbs, thereby successfully losing or maintaining weight easier.
And speaking of blood sugar & diabetes… If you think that Type 2 diabetes is irreversible like many misinformed doctors will tell you, then you need to read some of the proof below on how to naturally reverse Type 2 diabetes… Although eating “paleo” or even low-carb is a good first step, you’ll also see below other techniques on just how simple it can be to “fix” your diabetes, control your blood sugars, and lose all of that excess fat sitting on your stomach.
