Diabetes: 2 large meals better than 6 small ones?

crop1_240x240_22may14A new study has revealed that eating two complete meals in a day rather than six small meals with the same calories content helps more in curbing weight and blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes.

The authors of the research said that eating only whole breakfast and lunch helps in reducing body weight, liver fat content, fasting plasma glucose, C-peptide and glucagon and improved OGIS, more than the six meals split into same caloric restriction.

The study also suggested that eating larger breakfasts and lunches might be more helpful than six smaller meals during the day, for the type 2 diabetic patients who are on a limited calorie diet.

The research was published in Diabetologia, the journal of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes.
