Heck, I could Have Told Ya That...!

For years we've been told that having things like cake, chocolate, candy, all the good tasting stuff for breakfast was bad for us!

Finally, there's a report that shows we can go back to eating some of the good stuff for breakfast again...and it might be good for us! Check this out!

Study: Eating dessert for breakfast is good for your diet

Chocolatey cereal could help you lose weight.

Going against the advice of moms everywhere, researchers found eating chocolate for breakfast actually helps dieters curb cravings throughout the day and lose weight.

The Atlantic wrote up the study, conducted by researchers in Tel Aviv, Israel, and published in the journal “Steroids.”

“Starting the day with a full meal that includes a sweet dessert can bolster and maintain a dieter’s weight-loss progress,” the article said.

In the study, obese adults who ate desserts as a part of their breakfasts each lost an average of 40 pounds more than adults who had low-carb, low-cal breakfasts.
Bring on the Cocoa Puffs.

I could have saved all these guys a whole lot of time and effort, but as one asked me! I always figured stuff like this was good for ya! It just taste way too good NOT to be!

Coffee in the kitchen again this morning. It's cold and raining still this morning, so I'll serve up some hot chocolate if you want!

LOL, I'm going to send this to Hubby we both need to lose a little around the middle.

Would love a cup of hot chocolate! Can I have a touch of coffee in it too? By the way what is your mama quilting? Cause I love to sit and quilt.

Hey Judy...
Mom is always sewing or quilting or crocheting something. Has a sewing circle 1ST Tuesday of the month!

Not bad for an 86 year old!

Coffee any way you want it! That's my motto!

Thanks for coming by this morning!

I guess I wouldn't suffer if eating some chocolate for breakfast :-) :-) :-)

Have a great day!

I have to have my oatmeal with some agave nectar, type 2 diabetes limits any sweets for me, but when I can I make pancakes for the hubby and put a dollop of whipped cream and strawberries on the top! It always makes his day extra sweet!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey Anon 2:40...
That sounds pretty good to me as well! I'll bet the hubby sure appreciates it!

Thanks so much for coming over this morning!

All I know is: give chocolate to the ladies of the house, and no one dies. If breakfast time is chocolate time, it's chocolate time.

Well that changes everything. lol I love cookies and I have wanting some so bad but trying to be good. Good bye good hello cookies. And of course the coffee to go with it. What kind should I bring?

Dizzy-Dick said...

All my Jewish friends just love chocolate, and this report was written in Tel Aviv? Any connection here?

Never had much chocolate for breakfast, but mom always let us have pie!

HermitJim said...

Hey Sixbears...
Like they say, if mama ain't happy, no one is happy!

Chocolate should do the trick there!

Thanks, my friend, for the visit!

Hey OldFool...
Hey, that works for me! I like pie!

Thanks for coming by this morning!

Hey JoJo...
So now you can have your cookies, and still be doing good!

Aren't you glad I posted this, sweetie?

Thanks for dropping by!

Hey Dizzy...
I certainly feel that there just might be!

I sure appreciate the visit!

Hey Ruth...
I would get along with your mom just fine, I'm thinking!

Nothing says "good morning" like a good piece of pie and fresh coffee!

I really appreciate you coming by this morning!

It never fails. If you don't like what the doctors say, just wait a few years and they'll reverse themselves.

I knew that, too! :)
Finally, it's official. Thanks for sharing this with us!

Now, excuse me, dessert's waiting ;)

I never pay any attention to studies, they change their mind a year later.

For years I've gone by my own theory.


And I do that every damn day.

two scoops vanilla ice cream. :-)
