We’ve been told that you should always start your day off with a good breakfast. But is that true or is it just something mom used to say?
Well, European research seems to back mom up.
A study found that eating a protein rich breakfast can help you maintain blood sugar levels all day long.
In addition, researchers found that to keep blood sugar levels stable it’s best to eat your bigger meals early in the day rather than waiting until dinner to eat your biggest meal of the day.
Professor Oren Froy at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem said, “A person’s meal timing schedule may be a crucial factor in the improvement of glucose balance and prevention of complications in Type 2 Diabetes and lends further support to the role of the circadian system in metabolic regulation.”
Participants of the study ranged in age from 30 and 70 and consisted of 8 men and 10 women. All of the participants had been a Type 2 diabetic for less than 10 years.
On the 7th day of the study, blood samples were taken from each participant throughout the day. Results showed that the group who ate their bigger meal earlier in the day maintained their blood sugar levels better than the group who ate their main meal late in the day.
Yet again, it looks like mom does know best and when you eat is as important as what you eat!

(Kristine Burke, M.D.) I greatly appreciate the availability of the Dr.'s time and short waits for appointments. I think being rushed in and out serves little purpose. From the day I started going to Dr. Burke I expressed my expectations of my doctor, which are what we get now. I'm sure there is a lot I don't understand in terms of insurance coverage and laws in this state,...

(Kristine Burke, M.D.) I like that I am not just treated for a specific symptom, but that my overall health is evaluated. I like that I can call and usually get an appointment for myself or my children within 24 hours, and sometimes the same day if crucial. The fact that my daughter gets free healthcare through her employer (Sutter Health) and sees Sutter providers but she ...
