Yes... Very Yes!
And it was on sciencedaily.com, so there was a chance it was not one of those "fad diets", but a "for real" one based on scientific evidence. Oh, heck yeah! My two favorite meals of the day (breakfast and desert) just got introduced?! Maple syrup and funfetti cake?! This was way beyond double-end-of-the-bread...
Ok, so how is this even possible? Researchers at Tel Aviv University found that eating desert after a big, well-balanced breakfast helped people lose weight and keep it off. Breakfast provides the energy needed to get through the day, aids in brain functioning, and kick starts the body's metabolism. This means that your metabolism is highest in the morning. By eating more when you metabolism is most active, you can work off the extra calories over the course of the day. Plus, when people try and cut out sweets entirely, they end up becoming psychologically dependent on them. As breakfast is the meal that most successfully regulates ghrelin (the hormone that increases hunger), you don't need to eat as many sweets to feel satisfied.
So friends, I might have a funfetti cupcake with my Lucky Charms this AM... and maybe make it a double-end-of-the-bread-day while I'm at it. In all likelihood, I'll be so excited by 6PM, that I'll achieve a new energy state and make it to Feb. 30th.
