Tel Aviv: Those with a weakness for sweets can now include cookies and cake in a 600 calorie breakfast menu with some proteins and carbs to shed weight in a pleasurable way and also stay slim.Attempting to avoid sweets entirely can create a psychological addiction to these same foods in the long-term, explains Daniela Jakubowicz, professor at Tel Aviv University`s Sackler Faculty of Medicine, who led the study.Over the course of a 32-week-long study, participants who added dessert to their breakfast - cookies, cake, or chocolate - lost an average of 40 pounds more than a group that avoided such foods, the journal Steroids reports.What`s more, they kept off the pounds longer. A meal in the morning provides energy for the day`s tasks, aids in brain functioning, and kick-starts the body`s metabolism, making it crucial for weight loss and maintenance, according to a Tel Aviv statement.
