If you're overweight or suffering from type 2 diabetes, you'll welcome this new, helpful piece of research.

Scientists have discovered that if you eat your protein and vegetables 15 minutes before tucking into carbs, your blood sugar and insulin levels will be significantly lower than when you eat carbs before your protein and veggies. 

In fact, blood sugar levels were about 29 percent lower after 30 minutes, 37 percent lower after 60 minutes and 17 percent lower after two hours. The clever people also found that insulin levels were much lower when people had protein and vegetables first. 

Based on this finding, instead of saying 'Don't eat that', your doctor may rather say 'Eat this before that.'
