“Classic portions are considered to be a piece of cake of 150 grams for an adult and 75 grams for a child. However, 150 grams of classic cakes can contain between 40 and 70 grams of sugar, and based on nutritional data, a piece weighing around 65 grams may be the recommended portion. So, if you want a piece of cake - cut off a standard piece, divide it into three parts and get your portion,” said Starodubova.

According to chief nutritionist, eating cake as a dessert after the main meal leads to a lower risk of overeating compared to eating cake as a separate meal.

“In this regard, it is more appropriate to have a piece of cake for dessert after dinner. Together with the proteins received with the main dishes, carbohydrates from the cake will increase the satiety signal in the brain and allow stop in time, and the presence of food in the stomach and intestines will slow down the absorption of sugars and reduce the peak of blood glucose,” concluded Starodubova.

In addition, the doctor clarified that replacing the ingredients in cake can really reduce its calorie content but not significantly.
