Lower meal frequency for type 2 Diabetics.

Lower meal frequency for type 2 Diabetics.

Type 2 diabetic? Try having less larger  less frequent meals with a fasting period. 

A study from April 2014 found eating only breakfast and lunch reduced body weight, liver fat content, fasting plasma glucose, C-peptide and glucagon, and increased insulin sensitivity, more than the same calorie restriction split into six meals, the randomised cross-over study of 54 adults with type 2 diabetes found.

The study concluded; “A hypoenergetic diet (a restriction of 2,092 kJ/
day) consumed as breakfast and lunch reduced body weight,
HFC, fasting plasma glucose, C-peptide and glucagon, and
increased calculated insulin sensitivity (OGIS), more than the
same hypoenergetic diet (a similar restriction of 2,092 kJ/day)
divided into six, more frequent, meals.”
