NEW YORK (CBS NEWS) - Good news, dessert lovers. A new study suggests adding ice cream, cake, chocolate or cookies to your breakfast might actually help people lose weight.

For the study, Israeli researchers took 193 obese people between ages 20 and 65 and assigned them to one of two diets that were almost identical, except for breakfast. One diet included a low-carbohydrate breakfast, while the other contained a high-carb, protein-enriched breakfast with a choice of one of the desserts. The patients were also given blood tests throughout the study, to check for levels of ghrelin, a hormone that stimulates appetite.

After 16 weeks of dieting, both groups lost similar weights — about 33 pounds in the group that ate low-carb breakfast, compared to nearly 30 pounds in the group that ate a high-protein breakfast with dessert. But after 32 weeks, the low-carb group gained more than 25 of those pounds back, while the group that ate desserts in their breakfast regained about 15 pounds.
