Sure it does.  If you haven't tried eating the same amount of food but spread out into smaller meals thing I highly recommend you give it a shot for a couple of weeks.  You'll find yourself eating healthier by virtue of what you'll have for snacks.  To tide you over from snack to meal it's not going to be sugary junk food.

I got the pre-beetus and if you want to lose weight/burn fat, you have to let your blood sugar drop.  There's no way around it.  The snack all the time method works fine if you're on an extremely low carb diet, otherwise you're better off extending the time between meals, preferably when you're sleeping so you don't notice that insatiable hunger when your sugar levels are dropping.  Since they didn't outline what the diet was, it's hard to tell how people would react to what they were eating.

NEWSFLASH!!!

Everyone is different and something that works for one person doesn't necessarily work for another.

I am a type 2 and how certain sugars affect me affect other differently. You have to experiment with your diet and see what works for you.

I will say one universal thing. EXERCISE DAMMIT! That more than anything else helps.

Ok. Eat more of certain sugars to fight type 2 diabetes. Got it.

Let's see here. One study did frequent, small healthy meals and got a positive result. The other did 2 large, healthy meals and got a positive result. People who are diabetic generally eat several large, unhealthy meals.

It's almost as if there's a way to pick out a trend here.

You repeated yourself there.

Crap, I just signed up for a Type II study that pays $9100 for three months of testing...

Wait, they say three meals a day so I am safe.

They are still bothering with this sh@7? Cut the sugar cut down on the grain and food that never lived, and move a little.

Now the docs will never take your foot!

1) Study could be statistically inaccurate, poorly designed, etc.

2) Could be different genes going down.  I mean, they just found an obesity gene that had to do with how you process carbs.

I've heard many "experts" suggest that it's healthier to eat many small meals than a few big ones, but I have yet to see any science to back that up. Has anyone even studied this?
 
2014-05-16 08:46:01 PM  
For our statistically and medically minded friends, is 54 people enough for any sort of conclusion?
 
2014-05-16 09:06:14 PM  
OR you could just stop stuffing your face everytime your hungry and not snack.
 
2014-05-16 09:55:42 PM  
These studies need to stop.

Type 2 diabetes should not be prevented or treated with diets that cut out refined and processed sugars and carbs. It should only be treated with prescription drugs.

Won't somebody think of the pharmaceutical execs?

This study kinda makes sense to me. If there's more time when I'm not piling stuff down my piehole, then there's more time for the meds and my body to work with the meds the study says I should be taking. That sixteen hour fasting period probably doesn't hurt.
