New researched showed that eating bread after meal is advisable than eating it with an empty stomach, NPR claimed.

David Ludwig, director of the Optimal Weight for Life Clinic at Boston Children's Hospital explains, "the worst situation is having refined carbohydrates on an empty stomach, because there's nothing to slow down the digestion of that carbohydrate into sugar."

A new study released in Diabetes Care urges everyone to eat bread at the end of the meal. A new way of eating bread has a good effect on blood sugar and insulin, this according to their research.

A group of researchers in Weill-Cornell Medical College made an experiment on a group of participants, including people who had Type 2 diabetes.

On the first day of the test, the participants first ate a standard sized ciabatta roll. Then they were served salad dressed with vinaigrette, steamed vegetables and grilled chicken.

Then on the second test they reversed the order. The participants ate the same meal, but the bread was served last.

"And what we found was a striking difference in blood sugar and the insulin required to keep that blood sugar under control," Louis Aronne of Weill-Cornell Medical College said.

They found out that when the participants ate the bread last in their meal their blood sugar dropped to 30 percent lower.

Aronne concluded, for people with diabetes, taking carb to the end of the meal can help make a "huge difference". Aronne also added that this research can help people widen the diet perspective of those who are trying to lose weight but are completely doing everything wrong when it comes to managing carb consumption.

Officials cleared that research showed that eating bread after meal, cause glucose and insulin responses withing a few hours hence, results are still unclear when it comes to long term effects.

Aronne and the group are still doing a research to answer many questions about carb consumption.
