A full English is the strongest start to your day

12th October 2009

A dietician at St George's Hospital in London has monitored a journalist's blood sugar and found a full English breakfast was best for maintaining blood sugar levels.

Catherine Collins said:  "This meal is virtually sugar-free but constitutes nearly half of a man's recommended daily intake of calories. The amount of fat here is the equivalent of half a shallow tub of margarine or 33 bowls of cereal - this could quite fairly be called a heart attack on a plate. But the fat slows the uptake of released sugar from the carbohydrates, meaning you should feel full for most of the morning."
