Chocolate cake with that coffee?

Chocolate cake with that coffee?
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….

HotFlashDaily.com was created in the spirit of making every day your very best, even when you just don’t feel like it.

The site was conceived and built through the combined efforts of contributing bloggers, technicians, and impassioned women who believe the way we treat ourselves is a direct reflection of how we feel about ourselves.

We’re looking for true short stories for the website, and perhaps for inclusion in an e-book, from women who want to tell others about their experiences with peri-menopause, menopause, and beyond. We’re looking for experiences, ups/downs/unexpected highs and lows, sticky situations, “what I wish I’d known”, “what I’d tell my younger self”.. you name it!

Submissions should be first-person posts written in a blogging, editorial, or columnist style WITHOUT commercial links.
