Diabetic Low Carb Breakfast Recipes
"Many people are essentially cured of their [type 2] diabetes by low-carbohydrate diets, but that message is not getting out," says low-carb proponent and biochemistry professor Richard Feinman, PhD, of the SUNY Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Charity Diabetes UK provides the following brackets for daily carbohydrate intakes.
Moderate carbohydrate: 130 to 225g of carbs
Low carbohydrate: under 130g of carbs
Very low carbohydrate: under 30g of carbs

The American Dietetic Association says children who eat a healthy breakfast are more likely to have better concentration, problem-solving skills and eye-hand coordination.
