Science Says Eating Chocolate Cake For Breakfast Is Actually Very Healthy

To all our sweet-toothed friends, we have great news for you!

Science now says that eating chocolate for breakfast can actually help you lose weight.

It's been touted as "the most important meal of the day" for eons but you can now toss your breakfast cereal back in the cupboard and get down to some real breakfast business with some chocolatey goodness.

Don’t believe us? Here’s the evidence to back up this ‘too good to be true’ claim:

According to various studies conducted at the University of Tel Aviv, we should eat organic, dark- chocolate first thing in the morning at the time when the body’s metabolism is working hardest.

Researchers from Tel Aviv University found that combining chocolate with protein and carbohydrates for breakfast guards against sugar cravings throughout the day. This means as you have already had your sugar fix, you are less likely to crave it and snack on junk in the afternoon.

The study, observed over 32 weeks, was conducted on 193 non-diabetic, clinically obese participants who were split into two separate groups:

  • Group A was given a 300 calorie breakfast every morning. 
  • Group B were given a 600 calorie breakfast including chocolate pudding... I know which group I would prefer to be in!

Professor Daniela Jkubowicz, lead researcher in the study, noted long term benefits of a large, sugary breakfast: The second group of dieters lost on average 37 pounds more than the former, reporting fewer sugar cravings.

So...thanks to this great news, you can now enjoy healthy, organic, dark- chocolate for breakfast and ditch the side of guilt that usually accompanies it!

Liz Moskow, food trend expert and culinary director at Sterling-Rice Group, thinks there will now be a huge rise in chocolate-based breakfast food trends as everyone wants a taste of this for breakfast!

That’s not all...

The Maine-Syracuse Longitudinal Study served up a real treat when they researched the health benefits of dark chocolate.

They found the tasty treat can improve cognitive function and enhance reasoning, memory and focus.

Bring on the chocolate, we say! And keep it organic!
