A certain rather tasty breakfast could help with weight loss by burning fat, scientists have found. Could milk chocolate for breakfast help you lose weight?
It is thought that eating sweet food in the morning decreased cravings later in the day.
Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the University of Murcia in Spain found eating chocolate in the morning helped burn fat and reduce levels of sugar in the blood.
Eating the food at any time of day influenced hunger, appetite and sleep.
Frank A. J. L. Scheer, PhD, MSc, Neuroscientist, a co-author of the study, said: “Our findings highlight that not only ‘what’ but also ‘when’ we eat can impact physiological mechanisms involved in the regulation of body weight.”
Another co-author, Marta Garaulet, PhD, said: “Our volunteers did not gain weight despite increasing caloric intake.
“Our results show that chocolate reduced ad libitum energy intake, consistent with the observed reduction in hunger, appetite and the desire for sweets shown in previous studies.”
The 19 women consumed 100g of chocolate either an hour before bed or an hour after waking up.
