People with type 2 diabetes have to keep a close watch on their blood glucose levels.
Now a small study finds that having the day's biggest meal at breakfast and smallest meal at dinner offers much better glucose control than having a small breakfast and big dinner—even when the total intake during the day was exactly the same:1,500 calories.
The study, by researchers from Israel's Tel Aviv University, Sweden's Lund University and other institutions, is in the journalDiabetologia.
Eighteen adult volunteers, 10 women and eight men all with type 2 diabetes, were assigned by a coin flip to either the big breakfast diet or the big dinner one.
In the big dinner diet, participants spent a week having about a 200-calorie breakfast, a 600-calorie lunch and a 700-calorie dinner.
The big breakfast diet was the reverse, with the 700-calorie meal in the morning, the 600-calorie lunch and a light, 200 calorie dinner.
After two weeks, the groups switched meal plans, so that the big dinner folks became the big breakfast folks and vice versa.
And overall, various measures of blood glucose and insulin levels were significantly better in those who had their big meal in the morning.
The next steps are longer studies with more participants.
But like a healthy breakfast, this research seems like a good start.
“晚多吃” 组的受试者们在接下来的一周当中每天摄取的卡路里中早餐占200，午餐600，而晚餐700卡路里 。
2周后两组交换进餐计划：原来“早多吃” 那一组改为“晚多吃”组，反之亦然 。
1.keep watch on 监视
例句:Plainclothes goons now keep watch on his home.
2.glucose control 血糖控制
例句:After 90 days, the rats fed blueberries had less abdominal fat, lower cholesterol, and improved glucose control andinsulin sensitivity.
3.either or 不是…就是…
例句:Either or both are, he says, "really helpful for turning raw talent into management skills."
4.vice versa 反过来也一样；反之亦然
例句:But maybe you'd really rather manage by consensus-or it might be vice versa.
