Eating Cake Can Aid Weight Loss

Can eating cake really help you achieve your perfect size?

I know it sounds strange & I know you’re thinking I’ve lost the plot but eating cake really can help you lose weight.

Before I opened my bakery full time I worked for a weight loss company for 8 years.

I helped hundreds of people achieve their ideal goal weight and one thing it taught me was that a little of what you fancy does you good.

Imagine the scene, you’re on a weight loss plan but you have one of my delicious rich chocolate truffle cakes sitting on your kitchen worktop, you look longingly at it but try to avoid it.

To stop the pangs you open the fridge and eat a low fat, artificially sweetened yoghurt… does it help?  Nope!

So you then reach for the packet of ‘healthier’ snack bars you bought, covered in cheap artificial chocolate… satisfied? Of course not!

Maybe some crackers will do the job? Some baked crisps? An apple? Dust 😉 ?

Highly unlikely … so then what happens?

You eat the cake anyway!

If you deprive yourself of the thing you desire you are more likely to over indulge in other treats taking you over your daily calorie budget yet still remain unsatisfied because what you really wanted was that gorgeous cake.

If you had just eaten the cake in the first place you wouldn’t have eaten all the other snacks so you see eating cake really does help you lose weight!

Everything in moderation is the key to success so you really can have your cake and eat it.
