When I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, I had to reconcile myself to a life of breakfast every day, without fail. Part of managing my blood sugar requires both morning medications that I cannot take on an empty stomach, and that I eat small meals throughout the day to keep my health on an even keel. That means that not only do I now have to eat breakfast every morning, which I'd never cared about doing before, I have to eat a healthy breakfast.
How much sugar are you consuming daily? Most likely you're overindulging and not even realizing it. According to the American Heart Association, you should be between 6 and 9 teaspoons per day. That's basically the equivalent to one can of soda, folks. Now we're not suggesting to avoid sugar completely because that would be almost impossible and life just wouldn't be as sweet, however, there are ways to cut back on your sugar intake.
