I've always believed that eating cake for breakfast was a good idea, just not the best choice as far as being healthy. That's why this article was a good find!
Cake, Bacon, and Eggs
Scientists like a good laugh as much as anyone, so they took people who were already fat and then fed those people cake for breakfast. But instead of gaining weight, the researchers found that eating cake or a similar dessert sweet in the morning could lead to significant weight loss. And there isn’t even any fine print: adding a breakfast sweet was the only “lifestyle change” these people made.
The key here is getting the sugary stuff out of the way early in the day. Your body is most active in the morning, especially in digesting food. You’re also giving it all day to use up the energy. Eating large evening meals often causes your body to just start storing (that’s called ‘fat’) because it doesn’t have anything to do with the energy you’ve given it.
I'm all in favor of eating sweets for breakfast from time to time. You know, donuts and sweet rolls and certainly...a great big piece of cake!
Coffee out on the patio this morning. In honor of the post, how about some lemon pudding cake to go with it?
