I've told you about some daffy diets over the years.

The candy diet, cookie diet, potato diet, Twinkie diet, oat diet. Now, you can add one more to the list.

It's the "cake for breakfast" diet as researchers claim that eating junk in the morning -- and only in the morning -- can actually help you to lose weight.

You'd have to have batter between your ears to believe that one, but apparently a small study found that obese people given junk like cake, cookies and donuts in the morning lost as much weight as obese people who didn't get junk in the morning.

The one difference here is that the junk eaters ate a bigger breakfast and a smaller dinner, while everyone else had small breakfasts and big dinners.

But overall, they all had the same number of calories throughout the day -- so is it really any surprise that they all managed to lose the same amount of weight?

After the study, however, the cake-eaters lost some more weight... while the rest re-gained. But since no one was actually taking part in the study anymore, that proves zippo.

And besides, even if you did lose weight on cake, do you really think you'd be healthy?

Heck, no!

Trust me, you're better off being a little overweight and eating all the right things than stick-thin on cake, even if you can manage to pull it off. But that's not an "either-or" proposition, because if you eat all the right things you won't weigh an ounce more than you should anyway.

And you won't have to count a single calorie.

Enjoy all the fresh steak, bacon, and eggs you want -- eat until you're full -- and skip all the carb-loaded junk, and you'll be in the best shape of your life on the foods you love anyway.

It's like having your cake and eating it, too. Minus the actual cake of course.
