Those with a sweet tooth may be overjoyed by a new study.
Scientists with Tel Aviv University found that eating dessert for breakfast could actually contribute to weight loss.
Researchers found people who don't have dessert for breakfast regain weight, while those who do have dessert in the morning actually drop pounds.
Overall, those who eat dessert for breakfast lose an average of 40 pounds more than non-dessert eaters.
Scientists say the key is to indulge in the morning, when your body's metabolism is more active.
