According to a research published in the Endocrine Society’s Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism.
Mealtimes should be in accordance with the biological clock, which is a natural, internal process that governs the sleep-wake cycle every 24 hours. Certain foods consumed at different times of the day may help diabetics achieve better health results.
“We discovered that eating potatoes in the morning, whole grains in the afternoon, greens and milk in the evening, and less processed meat in the evening was linked to greater long-term diabetic survival,” stated Qingrao Song, M.D., of Harbin Medical University in Harbin, China. “Nutritional guidelines and diabetes intervention techniques should include the ideal times to eat specific foods in the future.”
The researchers looked at data from 4,642 adults with diabetes who took part in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey to see how likely they were to die from heart disease. People with diabetes who ate potatoes or starchy vegetables in the morning, whole grains in the afternoon, and dark vegetables such as greens and broccoli, as well as milk, in the evening had a lower risk of dying from heart disease. People who ate a lot of processed meat in the evening were more likely to die from heart disease.
