Want to lose weight? Then grab a bar of chocolate! It turns out, having a little chocolate can actually HELP you stay slim! Here's how, courtesy of Quick and Simple Magazine. Chocolate can help prevent overeating. A recent study in the journal Hypertension found that the antioxidants in dark chocolate - called flavanols - may help regulate blood sugar production. Which'll help prevent the spikes that give you the urge to overeat. Chocolate can help you feel full. Just one ounce of dark chocolate contains three grams of filling fiber - which is the same amount you'd get from a small apple. Now, we're not saying you should skip the apples and eat nothing but chocolate, but having a piece might help you feel satisfied. So, you won't feel the need to binge on other junk foods. *Chocolate can motivate you to stick with your diet. Neuroscientists at the University of California found that chocolate contains feel-good chemicals that promote a sense of confidence and well-being. The more confident you feel, the more likely you'll be to stick with your diet during those moments where you want to throw in the towel. Know this: You should choose chocolate that's at least 70% cocoa. Products with less have undergone extra processing, which depletes the chocolate of its health-enhancing compounds. Also, moderation is key. So, stick to a square or two. Because no matter how many health benefits chocolate might have, inhaling five bars a day won't help your weight loss cause.
