Want To Lose Weight? Eat Dessert At Breakfast

February 7, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
Israeli researchers report that desserts – cookies, cake or chocolate – eaten as part of a 600-calorie breakfast that also includes proteins and carbohydrates can actually help dieters lose more weight. For the 32-week study, 193 clinically obese, non-diabetic dieters were divided into two groups, one of which ate a 300-calorie breakfast and the other a 600-calorie breakfast that included dessert. Those who ate the breakfast dessert lost an average of 40  pounds more than those who avoided such foods. And they kept the pounds off longer. The key to the weight loss is eating the desserts in the morning when the body’s metabolism is most active and extra calories can be worked off during the day, researchers say.
