Meal timing could help you manage type 2 diabetes.
I’m Lindsay Liepman with your latest health news. A new study found that when people with
type 2 diabetes ate a high-energy breakfast and a low-energy dinner, their blood sugar
control improved. But when they did the opposite, they were more likely to have blood sugar
spikes after the meal than the high/low eaters. Here’s a look at what a high-energy breakfast
meal plan would mean. Around 700 calories at breakfast, 600 at lunch and only about
200 at dinner. It helped the study participants have lower blood glucose levels and higher
insulin levels by mid day than if they ate fewer calories at breakfast and more at dinner
time. If you have type 2 diabetes, talk to your doctor about a meal plan that can help
you manage the disease.
