A High-Energy Breakfast May Help People with Diabetes to Lose Weight

According to a new study completed at Tel Aviv University in Israel, obese people living with type 2 diabetes can improve their health with a high-energy breakfast. This held true as long as participants reduced the size of their other daily meals.

The study involved 29 men and women with an average age of 69 years old. All participants were obese and were treating their type 2 diabetes with insulin. Participants were all restricted to 1,600 calories daily. However, those who ate a high-energy breakfast, medium-sized lunch, and small dinner lost an average of 11 pounds during a three month time period. Patients among other groups gained weight during the same trial period.

These findings were presented at the ENDO 2018 Conference in Chicago, IL on March 17, 2018.
