Israeli study participants who ate 600 calories of chocolate cake for breakfast lost more weight than those who ate a 300-calorie low-carbohydrate breakfast, even though both consumed the same calories over the course of the day. “Eating chocolate or sweets in the morning helps your metabolism to be more active, so throughout the day, you won’t feel the urge to consume more,” said researcher Dr. Daniela Jakubowicz.
