The timing of meals plays a critical role in managing blood sugar levels and insulin in the body. For individuals with diabetes, it is essential to follow a different meal schedule compared to non-diabetic individuals. This is because their blood sugar levels are delicate, and they may suffer complications if they do not manage their meals well.
In this article, based on a publication on WebMD, we will discuss how individuals with diabetes should time their meals. If you have diabetes and are unsure of how to schedule your meals properly, this article should provide some helpful tips.
How Should Individuals with Diabetes Time Their Meals?
According to healthline individuals with diabetes should space out their meals throughout the day as follows: consume breakfast within an hour or half after waking up from sleep. After breakfast, individuals should eat a meal every 4 to 5 hours.
It is crucial to avoid consuming meals containing carbs or refined substances, as they can harm the body. Additionally, it is advisable to have healthful snacks such as vegetables, fruits, and carrots between meals if you feel hungry. This practice not only regulates blood sugar levels but also helps avoid low sugar levels resulting from diabetes medication.
