Chocolate Dessert With Breakfast

Recent studies have found out that integrating dessert into your well-balanced 600-calorie breakfast, that contains carbohydrates and proteins, allows people who are on a strict diet to shed unwanted pounds and maintain it in the long run.

Scientists categorized 193 clinically obese, non-diabetic adults into two groups. Such groups were provided with virtually the same low-carbohydrate diets containing 1,400 calories every day for females and 1,600 calories per day for males. Nevertheless, one group was given a low-carbohydrate 300-calorie breakfast, while the other group was provided with a 600-calorie breakfast that’s loaded with carbohydrates and protein, and it always came with a dessert.

In the first 16 weeks, losing weight didn’t have difference for the two groups. However, following the 32-week period, people who had a dessert, like cake or cookies, along with their breakfast were able to shed about 40 pounds more as compare to those who consumed the lighter, low-carbohydrate breakfast.

“What you eat for breakfast does not make you fat,” in accordance with professor Daniela Jakubowicz, part of the Sackler Faculty of Medicine and the Diabetes Unit at Wolfson Medical Center. She cited that breakfast gives energy you can use for the whole day. It can increase your metabolism and aid in the thinking processes. If a low-calorie diet restricts carbohydrate intake in the morning, your metabolism tends to crash. That said, the body will compensate which will eventually promote weight gain the moment you consume carbs, which is likely to happen since you’ll be starving come lunchtime. “Breakfast increases metabolism and decreases hunger,” she added.

Research has it that eating chocolate in the morning tends to maintain the levels of serotonin during the day, so you won’t feel depressed. The moment the chocolate you had in the morning crosses your mind, you would not recall the fact that it did make you happy, given that you had it when your level of serotonin was up. Thus, it can decrease your dependence on chocolate.
