Can people who have diabetes eat scrambled eggs and bacon?

A common question that oftentimes arises amongst those who have recently been diagnosed with diabetes is whether or not they can eat scrambled eggs and bacon. It's an understandable question because scrambled eggs and bacon happen to be an extremely popular choice for breakfast.

The number one thing to understand about food that you eat when you have diabetes is that you need to be mindful of the amount of carbohydrates contained in the stuff you're eating. The overwhelming majority of doctors who treat patients who have been diagnosed with diabetes indicate that around 75 grams of carbohydrates per meal is acceptable. It's beyond the scope of our conversation to get into a detailed analysis of exactly how many carbs are contained in scrambled eggs, bacon, and other types of food but as long as you're keeping your total carbohydrate intake below around 75 grams per meal, you're fine.

Needless to say, you shouldn't just sit down and eat a bunch of candy bars and assume that because they fall beneath a certain carbohydrate threshold, you're doing yourself a favor. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Something else to keep in mind is that most medical doctors recommend doing some light exercise after every meal. This can be something as simple as a short walk. Generally speaking, it's not enough to simply modify your diet. You also need to be mindful of how much exercise you're getting.

So go ahead and have your scrambled eggs and bacon. Don't start to get hung up on whether or not you can have something that you've been eating for many years. What ultimately matters is that you just use some common sense and moderation when it comes to selecting the types of foods that you're going to be eating. It also really helps if you start getting more exercise.
