Consuming chicken breast meat may contribute to hyperglycemia, which can stimulate the production of glucose by the liver. However, chicken breast meat is also a low-GI food, which can help regulate blood sugar levels and prevent hypoglycemia when consumed as part of a balanced diet. The key is to avoid overconsumption and optimisation of chicken breasts.

Optimise the consumption of chicken breast meat.
• Consider pairing your chicken breast with a small portion of salad and complex carbs like brown rice, quinoa, or sweet potatoes to make it a complete meal.
• Try not to add sugar to the gravies or sauces you use with your chicken breast.
• Consider portion size when consuming chicken breast. Consume at least 100 grams of chicken per meal, depending on your daily protein needs.
• Consider marinating your chicken breast in a healthy marinade such as lemon juice, olive oil, and herbs to add flavour without added sugars.

As a complete protein with all the essential amino acids, chicken breast meat is a great source of nutrition for the body. Additionally, chicken breast meat is low in fat and protein and can satiate you. By incorporating chicken breast meat into a well-balanced diet, you may be able to improve your glucose metabolism.
