DOES SKIPPING BREAKFAST PUT YOU AT A HIGHER RISK FOR TYPE 2 DIABETES?

It is common to say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Moreover, many studies come to explain why it is so important to eat healthy in the morning.

A study established the risk

German researchers reviewed existing studies and concluded that skipping breakfast – even occasionally – was associated with a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes. More specifically, the results of the study published in The Journal of Nutrition indicate that the risk can rise to 55%, if breakfast is skipped 4 to 5 times a week.

What are the effects of eating breakfast

Several factors can explain this phenomenon. First, skipping breakfast could increase insulin resistance. It is therefore more difficult for the body to get its insulin level back  to a normal range. Also, if this situation is chronic, the risk of developing type 2 diabetes increases.

In addition, omitting breakfast usually results in a rise in blood sugar after lunch and dinner. This can lead to excessive stress on the body and lead to poor food choices.

Finally, not breaking the fast after a night of sleep can tire the body and the normal course of metabolism. It can also lead to overeating at lunch.
