Two meals a day 'effective' to treat type 2 diabetes

Postby simonwheeler » Fri May 16, 2014 10:19 am

Only eating breakfast and lunch may be more effective at managing type 2 diabetes than eating smaller, more regular meals, scientists say.
Researchers in Prague fed two groups of 27 people the same calorie diet spread over two or six meals a day.
They found volunteers who ate two meals a day lost more weight than those who ate six, and their blood sugar dropped.
Experts said the study supported "existing evidence" that fewer, larger meals were the way forward

From the BBC website
As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

I was never told to take 6 meals a day! I eat three - porridge for brekkie, a light lunch & an equally light supper, lots of salad & fruit.
My weight went down from 76 kilos to 58!! That's with cutting out sweet stuff & a lot of carbohydrate, of course.
