Yogurt: Diabetes Defender?


The newest set of  research data is suggesting just that.

According to a few different sources (I’ll post a few below), eating yogurt a few times a week could help ward off T2d. Now, I’m not sure (and neither are researches yet) if this is because people who eat yogurt regularly jut eat healthier in general, or if it has something to do with the probiotics.

Either way, it’s just another reason to eat yogurt regularly. It’s delicious, generally healthy, and good for your tummy, which is open to a whole host of problems because of the ‘beetus (see this article about Gastroparesis).


Here are a few links to those studies, for your reading pleasure:

Today I’m talkin’ breakfast! Or, if you’re me, breakfast, lunch, or a snack.

FAGE Total 0% Greek Strained Yogurt with Honey.

I eat this every morning for breakfast. Now, I know that technically, as a diabetic, I should be picking something a little less… full of honey, for breakfast, but I’m all about choices! If you refer back to my post about carb guidelines for meals, I am right where I want to be for carbs for breakfast, even if they are all sugars.

Here’s what the nutrition facts look like: 

  • Serving size: 1 container
  • Calories: 170 (Fat cal: 0)
  • Total Fat: 0g     0%DV
  • Cholesterol: 0mg     0%DV
  • Sodium: 50mg     2%DV
  • Total carb: 30g     10%DV
  • Fiber: 0g
  • Sugars: 29g
  • Protein: 13g     26%DV
  • Vitamin A: 0%
  • Calcium: 15%
  • Vitamin C: 0%
  • Iron: 0%

There are definitely worse things to eat for breakfast! Let’s not forget about all the benefits of eating Greek yogurt, anyway.

Diabetics, I have the worst time finding something good to eat for breakfast that doesn’t mess with my sugar (besides this, that is), what are you guys eating for breakfast? I mean there’s always…. eggs.
