Sweet Treat: Eating Chocolates For Breakfast Can Help With Weight Loss [VIDEO]
Studies suggest that eating a slice of chocolate cake for breakfast can potentially induce weight loss. Food experts highlighted that the chocolate cake breakfast trend will make it big this year.
Eating chocolate cakes for breakfast may be far out, especially to those who would want to lose weight. The sweet treat is strongly associated with weight gain as it is filled with sugar. Experts explain, however, that eating chocolate cake for breakfast can have a huge impact on weight loss.
Loz Moskow, a food trend expert, stated that eating chocolate cakes for breakfast will be the next biggest diet trend. She linked her claims to a study that mentioned the positive benefits of eating the sweet treat in the morning, according to the Daily Mail.
"There was a study that recently came out from Syracuse University re-touting the benefits of dark chocolate, specifically on cognitive function - abstract reasoning, memory, focus," Moskow stated. "The thought was eating chocolate prepares you more for your workday, so what better day part to incorporate dark chocolate into your meal than breakfast?"
Aside from its cognitive benefits, eating chocolates for breakfast is also said to aid in weight loss as mentioned by a study done at Tel Aviv University. The research led by Professor Daniela Jakubowicz pointed out that the body's metabolism works best in the morning, turning the sugar from the chocolate cake into energy. Eating sweets early in the morning is said to be a perfect time as the body has the whole day to burn the sugar, per the International Business Times.
Aside from the brain function and the weight loss, another study from Cleveland stated that chocolates are good for the heart. It is said to be rich in anti-oxidants which cleanse the body from free radicals and removes the toxins from the system.
