Healthier Eating for Type 2 Diabetes Patients

According to Reuters, a small study published in Diabetologia has found that large breakfasts and smaller dinners may prove healthier for type 2 diabetics. Study participants who followed such a regimen experienced fewer high blood sugar episodes. Participants followed a diet consisting of large breakfasts and light dinners for six days, spent a day at the clinic, and then two weeks later tried a diet of small breakfasts and large dinners. The results demonstrated that such a diet yielded post meal glucose levels 20 percent lower, and insulin levels 20 percent higher than when patients ate whatever size meals they chose. One doctor likened these findings to the age old advice to eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper.
