Take a Break for Breakfast (Diabetes)

Take a Break for Breakfast (Diabetes)

Losing weight is a great way to improve your health, but there are a few calorie-cutting shortcuts you’ll want to avoid. Skipping meals, for example, is a dangerous way to shed extra pounds, especially if you skip breakfast. Skipping breakfast deprives you of a steady source of energy and sets the stage for overeating later in the day. If you distribute your meals and snacks evenly throughout the day, you are less likely to get hungry and overeat. This also helps you control your blood glucose better.

If you’re able to comfortably skip breakfast, ask yourself why you aren’t hungry in the morning. Some people eat so many calories in the evening at supper and as snacks that they don’t feel hungry the next day. This eating pattern supplies your body with a large amount of glucose — an energy source — just in time to go to sleep. This can also cause high blood glucose.

Some people find that they just aren’t hungry early in the morning. If this is you, try not to skip breakfast. Even if you eat something small, you’ll still have energy for later in the day.
