Researchers: Chocolate cake is good for breakfast & weight loss
Consuming chocolate cake, particularly in the morning, has healthful benefits, food trend expert Liz Moskow said in an interview with The Daily Mirror.
“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,” she said.
“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?”
Another study also said that chocolate consumption can actually help in aiding weight loss.
The report said it works to decrease cravings by sending message to receptors in the brain that the body is getting a much-needed hit of loveliness, while not plying our bodies with excess sugar and fat.
Moreover, researchers from Tel Aviv University even suggest consuming chocolate cake for breakfast – the optimal time when metabolism is most active.
“Combining those two studies and the likeability of having dessert for breakfast, we predict that breakfast might start seeing brunch amuse-bouche chocolate cakes or brunch and breakfast restaurants incorporating a robust dessert menu”, she added in the report.
