A Spanish study found that early risers could avoid Type 2 diabetes. Researchers found that eating the first meal of the day after 9 a.m. increases risk of developing the disease by 59% compared to those who ate earlier. Skipping breakfast entirely also increases risk.
The study examined 100,000 participants of a French study to investigate the association between meal timing and diabetes.
“Our results suggest that a first meal before 8 am and a last meal before 7 pm may help reduce the incidence of Type 2 diabetes,” researcher Manolis Kogevinas said.
