Dessert First Weight Loss Strategy

Does this sound too good to be true?

Starting the day with dessert may be the way to keep off unwanted pounds while indulging yourself, a little.

It seems that cravings are kept at bay throughout the day and ghrelin, the hunger hormone, decreases when dessert was added leading to additional weight loss.

Bear in mind, the results don’t suggest that everybody should simply add a glazed doughnut to their morning meal. The study looked specifically at people eating strict low-calorie diets — 1,600 calories a day for men, and 1,400 calories a day for women. The research included nearly 200 nondiabetic obese adults, who were randomly assigned to one of two low-calorie diet groups; both were identical except for breakfast: one group (the lucky ones) ate a 600-calorie, high-carb, breakfast that came with a choice of a cookie, chocolate, cake or a doughnut for dessert. The other group ate a 300-calorie low-carb breakfast. Both breakfasts were rich in proteins, such as tuna, egg whites, cheese and low-fat milk.
