|Me & Cake, circa 2011|
These results lead me to one conclusion: There is a God.
The study revealed that dieters who ate a large breakfast with carbs, protein and cookies, cake or chocolate, lost significantly more weight (40 pounds more!) than those who ate a small, low-carb breakfast over a 32-week study. The researchers said that the sweets helped tame cravings early on in the day, so that after dinner the participants were less likely to cheat on their diets. Also, the sweets in the morning helped to rev up their metabolism. Read more here, as it is pretty fascinating.
So, obviously, I will be starting this diet tomorrow. Along with my normal eggs and sausage or ham, or eggs and spinach, I will also be eating three of the oatmeal cookies that I made this weekend that are tempting me on the counter as we speak. Wish me luck!
Do you think that eating sweets for breakfast would help you eat healthier the rest of the day?
Do you eat breakfast now? If so, what keeps you full? What's your favorite?
