    I said something really rude when I read that.
    Fat doesn't have anything to do with insulin - no trigger to release any no need of it for digestion and use as an energy source. There are essential fats - you need them. Your brain and nervous system are high fat, and require maintenance.
    Your nurse is so totally wrong I am actually impressed.
    Eggs do not elevate cholesterol - someone has actually done tests, cheese is ideal as long as it is not high in salt - and there is a variation in the carb content, but most cheese is low enough for diabetes control.

    That's OK. I was apologizing to the moderator for using the four letter word for human excrement.

    I work shifts too and I'm not a breakfast person. On rest days I cook a load of waffles and freeze them. I use ground almonds instead of flour in the recipe to keep the carbs low. I then take a waffle to work which can be eaten cold or warm, and I also take a few cherries and a dollop of whipped cream. It feels decadent but is filling. You could also have the waffle with something savoury, i.e some mushrooms and grated cheese? On shift work it's all about food preparation and planning but some time spent preparing means you can just grab and go.
