Okay, should is a strong word… But studies have proven that eating a slice of chocolate cake in the morning, when combined with a meal high in protein and carbohydrates, can help you lose more weight than a low calorie breakfast. Umm, can we start today?
Morning is the best time to indulge in your cravings. In concordance with the Marie Antoinette dieting approach, it’s proven that suppressing your desire for sweets is often more harmful than simply eating what you want. So when you have a light, not-quite-filling breakfast, it only intensifies your need for MORE later on. Whereas, the high-calorie chocolate cake option exhausts the craving.
This is precisely why breakfast is known as the most important meal of the day! A filling, high calorie breakfast will leave you less likely to indulge in sugary high-caloric options in the meals and snack time following your breakfast.
Makes sense, right? Even so, it’s probably not the best idea to start every morning with chocolate cake — the mid-afternoon sugar crash might not be worth it (though I’m willing to take the chance…) But here’s the gist: it can be worse for your physical and emotional health to suppress your natural cravings than to just give in. So, next time you’re craving a Cronut, go out and get one! Chugging your seaweed smoothie won’t make the pain go away, at least not forever.
