    Study: Eating chocolate cake for breakfast can help in weight loss

  • 1 The body's metabolism is most active in the morning

    A research showed that clinically obese adults who consumed a balanced 600 calorie breakfast that included a chocolate dessert, lose weight by average of 15 lbs after 32 weeks. While those who consumed a low-carb diet that included a 300-calorie breakfast regained around 22 lbs after losing some.

  • 2 Consuming calories in the morning reduces the desire for sweets

    Eating cookies or chocolate as part of breakfast that includes proteins and carbs helps reduce the craving for sweets later. Prof Jakubowicz, of Tel Aviv University, said: 'Attempting to avoid sweets entirely can create a psychological addiction to these same foods in the long-term.'

  • 3 Breakfast gives energy

    A morning meal provides the body with the needed energy to accomplish the daily tasks. It helps the brain to boost the metabolism, helping in maintaining or even losing weight. See the benefits of eating breakfast.

  • 4 The digestive organs are most active in the morning

    According to Chinese dietitians, the digestive organs are most active between 7 am and 9 am. This would technically be the best time for a healthy person to eat sweets . See how to lose weight faster.

  • 5 Moving carbohydrate consumption to the morning

    The body burns more calories in the morning, so it is preferred to consume carbohydrates early during the day rather than later at night or before bed to avoid fatty stuff being absorbed into the body unimpeded. See the benefits of losing weight.

  • 6 Breakfast reduces hunger throughout the day

    It is the meal that can best regulate ghrelin, the hormone that increases hunger. Ghrelin levels are mostly suppressed at breakfast. Thus, a person will eat less and feel full faster. See why people fail to lose weight.

  • 7 Eating chocolate in the morning helps those dieting to stick to their diet

    People who are on a diet feel satisfied when they eat what is supposed to be 'forbidden'. So after eating the cake, it is less likely to consume more sugars throughout the day as they did not deprive themselves.

  • 8 Dieters consume only the listed amount of calories

    Even though eating chocolate cake in the morning means consuming more calories during the day, studies show that later, people tend to eat less calories, ending up abiding by the range of calories that they should consume.

  • 9 This study works best for people addicted to sugar

    Many researchers and doctors said after this study that eating chocolate cake every morning won't promote weight loss to everyone. It depends on the person's weight, metabolism, eating habits, along with other factors. This study is specifically for obese dieters who are addicted to sugars.
