How Important is Portion Size in Diabetic Nutrition?

Click here to edit the content

Rabinovitz et al evaluated the effect of breakfast size on diabetic control. The study included overweight and obese patients, non-insulin dependent adults with type 2 diabetes. Patients were randomized to receive either a large breakfast consisting of a higher percentage of protein and fat or a smaller breakfast. Greater HbA1c and systolic blood pressure reductions were observed with the patients consuming the larger breakfasts. Satiety was maintained longer in those consuming a larger breakfast as well. Diabetic medications were also reduced in the bigger breakfast group.
