I'm pre-diabetic and have been trying to manage my BG levels to prevent a full diagnosis and having to use medication. I went on a low-carb diet (around 20-30g per day). With this, I had to switch out my morning granola for eggs. I love eggs! They're low carb and high fat, so perfect right? I found my blood glucose levels rise to around 150-160 after eating scrambled eggs. No bread or carbs with it. :( Not what I was going for. I've seen the same effect with the green smoothies in the morning. I'm thinking it may still be glucogenesis from my liver kicking out sugar and fats. I like to think that this will actually help heal my liver and decrease over time? Not sure about that though. Mi may try eating a few carbs with the eggs to see if that helps, or switch back to a sugar-free granola or flaxseed oatmeal.
Curious if any of you have had similar experiences with eggs or green smoothies raising your BG and if you have any advice or insights for me?
