First the fish, then the potatoes – doesn’t it matter what you eat first? The main thing is that it’s healthy, right?
In fact, studies have shown that the order of meals has a decisive influence on blood sugar levels. Test subjects who ate proteins and fats first, followed by the carbohydrate portion, had lower blood glucose and insulin levels than study participants who ate the meal in the reverse order. The researchers are also certain that the order (protein, fat, and then carbohydrate) also improved insulin sensitivity. In addition, the participants had a longer lasting feeling of satiety. So just give it a try!
