Hey, I really like this. Really good advice here. I like the idea of of starting the day with a protein shake. I like to include my daily greens powder also. As well as take a multivitamin and salmon oil for omega 3. Also going for a walk after dinner is a great idea too. I can vouch for its effectiveness.

I have trouble sleeping. Wife is even worse. This article may be a godsend! Just the one take away of starting the day with 30 grams of protein and reduce simple sugar intake. 

So one thing. Is there an optimal intake for protein during the day? Quick research showed that the optimal intake of protein every day is around 50 grams, so taking in 30 grams in the morning makes sense as it gives the body time to digest it while you’re awake (at least that’s my guess)? 

Should you have less protein at lunch and even less at dinner? So say 12 gms at lunch and 8 at dinner?

We take a 20–30-minute walk about 45 minutes after we finish eating so we’re close! Hopefully that has a similar effect.

What about the timing for dinner? We generally finish eating about 3 1/2 hours before we go to bed, though generally have a small ice cream while we walk, so technically 2 hours before.


The importance of sleep when you are managing blood sugar.

Start your day by fulfilling the complete quota of protein. In that respect, the Equip Prime Protein Powder with an egg breakfast is easy to accomplish and needs no preparation. Making a pancake requires no culinary skill.

It does carry all the nine amino acids that the body needs.

The most recent NIH study reveals that protein powder breakfast can reduce blood sugar throughout the day. The study findings indicate that a high-protein breakfast could suppress the breakfast postprandial glucose level and follow lunch and dinner. Still, this effect on dinner was attenuated when skipping lunch. The results were from continuous glucose monitoring.

It is good to find this particular protein powder. It can support gut health and is suitable for GI track without causing bloating like other protein powders.

We are all type 2 diabetic, and many of us are pure vegetarians, not even eating eggs. We manage our blood sugar using cottage cheese (homemade), and plain yogurt (homemade, from fat-free milk), and have the desired five servings of fruits and vegetables rich in fiber. We eat three main meals, breakfast being the heaviest. This is from the PCP and the registered dietician. We exercise regularly, and we drink 2-3 liters of water and stay hydrated. We are doing very well. Our sleep is good, and so is our blood sugar.

It is a lot of work compared to a protein breakfast, which is much easier. Thank you for this post.
