weight loss
Starting the day with a heavy breakfast offers health benefits including reduction of food intake during the day. Consequently, people who want to lose weight frequently try to incorporate this change into their behavior.

A new study emphasizes the importance this diet, suggesting it reduces the amplitude and frequency of blood sugar spikes when combine with a low-energy dinner.

Professor Daniela Jakubowicz from Tel Aviv University and Dr. Julio Wainstein of the Wolfson Medical Center’s Diabetes Unit and their colleagues, having a high-energy breakfast paired with a low-energy dinner lowers the overall daily hyperglycemia in type-2 diabetes.

According to study’s results, the post-meal glucose highs were 20 percent lower and levels of insulin, C-peptide, and GPL-1 were 20 percent higher in participants. The study created four groups of participants using the combination of energy for breakfast and dinner. Participants who followed the heavy breakfast and low energy dinner had significantly better blood glucose measurements compared to groups that followed either a heavy breakfast – heavy dinner or low energy breakfast – low energy dinner.

The groups with extreme energy combinations, despite eating the same calories, had blood glucose measurements higher as much as 23 percent.

Currently, researchers extend the study to determine the benefits of a high-energy breakfast and reduced-calorie dinner in the long-run.
