Eating chocolate cake as part of a full breakfast can help you lose weight, say scientists. Thanks to The Telegraph for cluing us in on this!
You know we have a “check with your health advisors” disclaimer here, right? Because we’re sharing an article here titled Chocolate Cake Breakfast Could Help You Lose Weight.” Naturally, even though we’re skeptical, we do love the idea. And if you read the piece, in the Telegraph, the notion is supported by a study, and it actually makes a lot of sense.
“…one of the biggest challenges that people face is keeping weight off in the long-term. Ingesting a higher proportion of our daily calories at breakfast makes sense. It’s not only good for body function but it also alleviates cravings. Highly restrictive diets that forbid desserts and carbohydrates are initially effective but often cause dieters to stray from their food plans as a result of withdrawal-like symptoms. They wind up regaining much of the weight they lost during the diet proper.
Ultimately this shows a diet must be realistic to be adopted as part of a new lifestyle. Curbing cravings is better than deprivation for weight loss success.“ said Professor Jakubowicz, Tel Aviv University.
What we want to know is whether or not pumpkin pie is as effective as chocolate cake….
