Do y’all remember when Wilford Brimley was the spokesman for Oatmeal? Well…now he is a spokesman for diabetes supplies! All kidding aside, the question of breakfast, particularly oatmeal and the like is a constant, wearing down of our soul. Here is a simple experiment: Have a breakfast consisting of 3-4 scrambled eggs with spinach, olive oil and whatever spices you might want. See how you feel 4-5 hours later. The next morning have a bowl of oatmeal. Kick up your heals and add a banana, some brown sugar or some dried fruit. How ya feeling 5hrs later today tiger? If you do not have rock solid blood sugar for a 4-6 hour period after a meal you are taking in too many carbs and consequently releasing too much insulin. No worries though, Mr. Brimley can hook you up with extra insulin once you pancreas gives out.
