Fat people should eat cake for breakfast

Written by The Sarcasmist on February 13, 2012 - Comments (7)

CakeThat is the conclusion drawn by a recent study. The study revealed that obese participants who consumed a breakfast high in protein and carbohydrates that included a dessert were more likely to stick to their diet and keep the weight off than participants who ate a low-carb, low-Calorie breakfast which excluded sweets.

The study suggests, said Dr. Daniela Jakubowiz, of Tel Aviv University in Israel (it’s good to see that important research is not being done just in the United States), that carbohydrates and protein eaten during breakfast may keep us satisfied through the day, while the addition of some sweets helps stem cravings for these foods.

The study involved 193 obese adults. Half of the test subjects were randomly assigned large breakfasts of 600 Calories, which also included a dessert item, such as a cookie or doughnut. The second group was assigned a small breakfast of 300 Calories. Both groups consumed a total of 1600 Calories (men) and 1400 Calories (women) per day; however, the group that ate the big breakfast ate a smaller dinner between 300-400 Calories.

After following this diet for sixteen weeks, both groups had lost about the same amount of weight; however, during the follow-up session of the study, after participants were advised to continue to follow the diet but to eat more if they were craving additional calories, the big breakfast group lost 15 pounds, while the small breakfast group gained 24.

As one of the most well-thought-out obesity studies, it helps unshackle dieters from the binds of low-Calorie, low-carbohydrate diets. Starting tomorrow morning I will be having a hearty breakfast of quail eggs, turkey bacon, and mini-muffin.

  1. Hm that’s a headscratcher “the small breakfast group lost 15 pounds, while the small breakfast group gained 24.” :?

    Also, if you eat 3-5 fruits every day you will not crave sugar anymore:)- I have tried it and I know that it works.

    This study reminds me of my aunt. In order to get her sweet tooth children to eat healthy food she promised them that they would get to eat candy afterwards. It worked! Her children ate healthy food:D

  2. “the small breakfast group lost 15 pounds, while the small breakfast group gained 24.”
    So.. which one is it?

  3. @Daniel & @Nightingale

    Can you guys not read..? Or do you read faster than you mind can digest..? It clearly states “the BIG breakfast group lost 15lbs, while the SMALL breakfast group gained 24″

  4. Hey nightingale801, I miss you!

    Well of course the big breakfast group ate less calories at dinner! They wasted all their calories on breakfast!! When you limit calorie intake like that, you’re gonna loose weight! It’s just common sense.
