Healthy Breakfast helps to Achieve Weight Loss Goal and Restraints Diabetes

Healthy breakfast helps to achieve weight loss goal and restraints diabetes, according to a recent research. A new study suggests that people with obesity and type 2 diabetes should add a high-energy food in their daily breakfast to lose weight, control diabetes and reduce insulin requirement.


The results of the findings were presented at ENDO 2018, the Endocrine Society’s 100th annual meeting on presented Saturday, March 17 in Chicago, Ill.

The study says a diet with three meals a day, that includes a heavy breakfast, ordinary lunch, and light dinner found to be more effective for weight loss, diabetes control with less reduce insulin requirement, and less hunger than traditional diet, according to Daniela Jakubowicz, M.D., lead author of the study and professor of medicine at Tel Aviv University.

She says what you eat and the amount of calories you eat is more important than when you eat. She and her colleagues looked at 11 women and 18 men with obesity and type 2 diabetes and their average wage was 69 years old. The researchers asked them to consume one of two different weight-loss diets for around three months. Both diets were included the same amount of daily calories.

The first group (Bdiet) were given three meals included with a heavy breakfast, a medium-sized lunch and a light dinner. While another group (6Mdiet) ate the traditional diet with six small meals evenly, including three snacks.

They found the need for insulin was decreased in a Bdiet group while the 6Mdiet group needed more insulin. Even Carbohydrate craving and hunger dropped Bdiet group but not in a 6Mdiet group.  The study concludes that healthy breakfast helps to achieve weight loss and it also controls diabetes level.

“A diet with adequate meal timing and frequency has a pivotal role in glucose control and weight loss,” Jakubowicz said.
