How many times, because of the frenetic pace, it happens to skip Breakfast and wait for lunch to finally eat something?
Nothing could be more wrong, because already the breakfast is essential for the well-being of our body, not only in fact, gives us the right charge to begin the challenging work day, but, say the latest studies, what we eat for breakfast lead levels postprandial Glucose. In most individuals it is possible to record high blood sugar after lunch, especially in susceptible individuals such as those with type 2 diabetes.
No fear... adopting the right strategies food seems possible to keep the situation under control. The foods eaten at breakfast seem to influence the post-prandial glycemic index (remember that the glycemic index is the ability of a food to raise Blood Glucose levels). Often we believe that the glycemic response is the same at every meal, but this is not so. In fact, what they eat, and especially when we eat it would play a key role in its expression. For this purpose it has been observed for some time a group of subjects suffering from diabetes type 2 and were monitored their glucose levels, insulin and other intestinal hormones involved in the regulation of insulin, after these subjects had consumed breakfast and lunch. Breakfast was made up of proteins or carbohydrates, lunch on both foods.
Well, protein at breakfast, would seem able to lower the levels of blood glucose more of carbohydrates, which on the contrary would increase the levels of insulin. This illustrates how the breakfast is essential to control the glycemic index during subsequent meals, because this leads to an increase in the concentration of insulin in the second meal, a fact which shows how the organization is committed to regulate the levels of glucose . Based on these considerations, it is appropriate to know the role of different foods into glucose regulation but also, and especially, how this role can vary in relation to physical activity or the time between one meal and another.
This will help us in maintaining our ideal weight and in regulating satiety.
Is an amazing breakfast protein sweet "protein pancakes" (for those who like a savory breakfast, simpler management, may resort to the smoked salmon, cottage cheese, scrambled eggs, etc ...):
3 egg whites
1/2 zucchini, finely diced
1/2 scoop of protein whey
30g of instant oatmeal (or oatmeal traditional)
2 tablespoons of oat bran
Pinch of salt
Cinnamon at will
1-2 tablespoons of cow's milk / almond / rice
Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor and let stand for 15 minutes. Smeared with oil a pan, pour the mixture, cover and cook over low heat.
You might ask, why zucchini, actually this ingredient serves to make a decent amount of inulin, a prebiotic fiber important for our body, can help regulate the absorption of sugars.
Enjoy your meal!
