    That's interesting... I've been eating two eggs fried in butter every morning and have found that I'm shaky, starving, and uncomfortable within an hour. I always thought it was just my big appetite, but I don't seem to have the same problem if I eat a big piece of meat. Wish I knew why.

We also discovered how good better eggs taste - might be a duh! moment, but sometimes you just have to experience things yourself to get convinced.

    It might be an idea. Glad you are feeling better, though!
    THIS!! Proper free-range eggs contain even less PUFA's and more SFA as well.

    This thread is old but I'd like to throw in my experience... I experienced the same hypoglycemic symptoms until I removed the egg whites and just ate the yolks. Suddenly, all the symptoms are gone. Maybe it was an allergy? People with egg allergies tend to react to the whites rather than the yolks.

    I probably should try that. I am sensitive to eggs, but I would be fine with eating only yolks if that were possible. Or at least better with eating only yolks than only whites.

    Eggs have a lot of protein.

    Protein is insulinogenic.

    ...connect the dots?

    People have the strange idea that only glucose drives insulin. That is not nearly true. Protein is a very significant cause of insulin spikes.
