For years, many Americans have lived with the misguided notion that it is better to eat a series of small meals each day as opposed to three large ones. In May 2014, more information was released that further disproves the age-old myth. Only this time, the researchers involved looked directly at the relationship between meal frequency and diabetes.
The study, which was published by the magazine Diabetologia, indicated that opting to consume just two, appropriately sized meals a day may be best for some diabetics. The two meals that the researchers are now recommending be considered by diabetics are breakfast and lunch. They feel that adopting such a routine may make diabetes management, at least for those diagnosed with type 2, much easier and more effective.
