Be honest: When do you usually consume breakfast?
If you answered between 7:30 to 9:00 a.m., it could affect your health in a bad way (regardless of age).
Recent research shows that people who prefer late breakfasts, regardless of how many calories they consume, are more likely to have a higher body mass index (BMI).
In turn, their risk of developing diabetes is also high.
The reason why?
Researchers believe that eating a late breakfast interrupts the body’s internal clock, causing hormone irregularities.
This could impair the body’s insulin self-regulating process, putting people at risk of the disease.
If you’re going to eat in the morning, you shouldn’t eat a late breakfast.
So how else can you keep your risk of diabetes low? Here are 3 meal mishaps you should avoid:
– Skipping breakfast.
Skipping any meal isn’t good for your health, but waiting until lunch to eat food could send your metabolism (and insulin control) out of whack, according to research.
– Not eating enough protein.
Eating a food packed full of carbohydrates without protein makes it harder to maintain insulin control. That’s a recipe for disaster.
– Not eating at regular times everyday.
Keeping a normal schedule is the best way to keep your insulin under control–remember, you’re not a college kid anymore.
A regular eating schedule keeps you healthy!
