Friday Lite · Science Says So

dessert for breakfast

It’s true. Scientists have determined that “eating a small dessert as part of a balanced breakfast can actually help you shed unwanted pounds.” Specifically. a small piece of chocolate or chocolate cake.

“In this study, researchers split 193 clinically obese, non-diabetic adults into two groups. Men got 1,600 calories a day and women got 1,400. Half the subjects had a 300-calorie, low-carb breakfast, while the other half got 600 calories in the morning, including a small piece of chocolate cake. Halfway through the 32-week study, both groups had lost an average 33 pounds per person. But in the subsequent 16 weeks, people eating the light breakfast gained back 22 pounds each, while the cake eaters lost another 15 pounds apiece, on average.”

We’ve all heard that “breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” This gives that saying a whole new meaning.

Life is uncertain. Eat dessert first. …thing in the morning.
