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.
