But for dark chocolate lovers, we still have good news. Nutritionist Liz Moskow claims that dark chocolate encourages memory and concentration if consumed in the early morning hours.
Recently a study was carried out at the University of Syracuse that analyzed the influence of dark chocolate on cognitive functions, thinking, recall and concentration.
The assumption was that eating chocolate early in the morning is preparing for a working day, so it's the best time to get involved in the diet.
The second study, this time from Tel Aviv, suggests that eating a dessert for breakfast helps to lose weight. It was attended by 200 people who did not suffer from excessive weight or diabetes and were randomly assigned to one of two dietary diets that had the same number of calories, but a different composition.
Both groups lost on average 15 pounds per person over a period of four months, but those who ate a 600 calorie breakfast that included something sweet managed to keep new weight steadfast.
Eating sweet in the morning reduced the need for excessive intake of calories for the rest of the day.
