The Meal Timing For People With Diabetes
freestyle libre 2 sensor covers

Eating meals at a set time every day can significantly improve your digestion.

Breakfast is the first and most important meal of the day. It helps control insulin levels. This is why you should never skip breakfasts. Your breakfast must be nutritious and keep you full for 4 – 4.5 hours. This helps to fight the urge to snack! 

The best time to have breakfast is 6:30-8:30, 12:00-14:00 is ideal time for lunch, and 17:30-19:30 is time for dinner. Timing is important. It gives your liver time to use up gluconeogenesis without draining your body’s resources.

Breakfast jumpstarts your metabolism and fuels your body for the whole day. You should focus on healthy fats, protein, and vegetables. Please, don’t eat cereals with milk, pastry, and granola for breakfast. You can even have a small dessert.

Lunch is the largest meal of the day. The ideal lunch should contain a mixture of fat, protein, and carbohydrates. Lunchtime is for eating whole grains like quinoa, buckwheat, or brown/black/unpolished rice. A few times a week you can have whole-grain sourdough bread or durum pasta. 

The basics for the dinner are a small portion of protein with cooked vegetables.

Berries and fruits should be consumed 15-20 minutes before breakfast and lunch. 

What berries to put on your list: black and red berries(from blueberries to raspberries, gooseberries, and lingonberries). As for the fruits, go for kiwi, plums, and all things citrus.
