Diet: High-Energy Breakfast with Low-Energy Dinner Helps Type 2 Diabetics.

Type 2 diabetics who consume a high-energy breakfast and a low-energy dinner have better control of their blood sugar than those who eat a low-energy breakfast and a highenergy dinner. This dietary approach results in lower post-meal glucose levels and higher levels of insulin, C-peptide (a component of insulin), and glucagon-like-peptide 1 hormone (GLP-1 and also known as incretin: an indicator of glucose metabolism that stimulates insulin release). Study co-author Dr. Oren Froy concludes, “A person’s meal timing schedule may be a crucial factor in the improvement of glucose balance and prevention of complications in type 2 diabetes and lends further support to the role of the circadian system in metabolic regulation.” Diabetologia, February 2015
