As you wake up your brain needs energy and this is the time of the day when your body converts food into energy. After that, when you consume chocolate cake , your body and brain become active and sharper respectively and thus start collecting the energy from food which gets deposited in form of fat in your body, due to which a person start gaining more fat. Other then that eating chocolate can even help you to control the craving for the sugary stuff.
According to Jakubowicz , people who eat carbohydrates, proteins and a 600 calorie dessert lose more weight than those who consume 300 calories for breakfast at a later time in the day.
People who ate huge breakfast with dessert usually they have lower levels of the hunger hormone as ”Ghrelin” and fewer food cravings as compared to those who ate small breakfast without dessert.

Reasons, Flavonoid is a nutrient which is present in cocoa beans and is commonly found in plant-based foods. It represents up to 20% of the compounds present in cocoa beans. Tea, Red Wine and Fruits like Grapes and Apples, are such things in which flavonoid is present in high amount.
