Having breakfast in the morning is very important for your health and the timing of breakfast is also very important in this.
Eating breakfast early may prevent diabetes risk: Study
If you often miss your breakfast, the findings of a new study may change your perspective. According to a new study, people who wake up early are not only healthier but also have better blood sugar levels than their similars who don’t wake up early and don’t have breakfast on time.
The study was presented earlier this year at ENDO 2021, a virtual conference of The Endocrine Society held in March. The findings of the study showed that eating early in the morning reduces insulin resistance and reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes.
The lead researcher of the study from Northwestern University in Chicago reveals how researchers observed that people who started eating early in the day had lower insulin resistance and lower blood sugar. The results were consistent regardless of whether individuals limited their food intake to 10 hours or less than 10 hours a day.
To draw patterns between meal timing and blood sugar and insulin levels, the team of researchers analyzed data from 10,575 adult Americans from a national survey on health and nutrition. It was found that intermittent fasting or eating for 10 hours or less every day was associated with higher insulin resistance.
In short, fasting people were less responsive to insulin, and this resistance becomes a risk factor for developing type 2 diabetes.
The findings of this study are in contrast to some earlier studies, which claimed that fasting can improve insulin sensitivity and control a person’s blood sugar level. But regardless of whether the person fasted or not, those who had their first breakfast before 8:30 a.m. had lower levels of insulin resistance.
The study shows that eating time is more strongly associated with metabolic measure measures than duration.
