Breakfast Prevents Diabetes

Breakfast Prevents Diabetes

(ePharmaNews) - Breakfast, which many people neglect either in an attempt to reduce their weight or due to lack of time in the morning, may be a key to protect against diabetes in the future.

In a study, published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers found that neglecting breakfast may increase the rate of males with diabetes by 21%.

The researchers in this study followed up 30 thousand men who did not have diabetes, heart disease or cancer for 16 years. They investigated about their dietary habits, as taking breakfast or neglecting it and the number of times to eat and snacks during the day.

The researchers found that 10% of men got diabetes during the duration of the study, and the average incidence in those who used to neglect breakfast was more than 1.5 times compared to those who ate breakfast regularly. The risk increased in men who were used to one meal a day or two compared to those who were committed to three meals including breakfast.

As for snacks, increased risk of diabetes was noted only in cases of obesity, which means that only persons with above-the-normal BMI had association between snacks and diabetes.
"Breakfast omission was associated with an increased risk of diabietes in men even after adjustment for BMI. A direct association between snacking between meals and diabetes risk was mediated by BMI." Said the researchers.

This seems to be a vivid example of the England’s proverb "Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, dine like a pauper ", especially that this study proves eating breakfast – in the contrast with the current belief - is essential for weight loss and keeping fit.
