How Many Eggs A Day Should Diabetics Eat

How many eggs is it safe for diabetics to eat per week?
The advice varies, yet between 3 and 7 seven eggs per week is the guideline for healthy people.
Diabetes sufferers ”need to be more careful,” said Dr. Walter Willett, Nutrition Department chairman at the Harvard School of Public Health. Eggs are no where are serious in terms of cardiac risk, compared with smoking, saturated fats, lack of fruits and vegetables in the diet and lack of exercise.
The average large egg contains 215 mgs of cholesterol solely in the yolk yolk, said Dr. Lawrence Cheskin, director of the Weight Management Centre at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The American Heart Association recommends eating no more than 300 mgs of cholesterol a day, hence after eating an egg you ought not to consume more cholesterol, such as, from cheese, red meat, and milk on the same day.
A way round the cholesterol from an egg is to eat just egg whites or use egg products with few or no yolks.
You could on the other hand skip the egg and change to toast with jam which has little nutritional value and raises blood sugar, said Willett. Forget the bacon though!
