EAT CHOCOLATE, LOSE FAT…
Yes you heard us correctly, check out how our sweet friend can help get us healthy!
If we told you that to lose fat, you should eat chocolate, you'd probably think we were mad. This is because the word, "chocolate" is frowned upon in certain nutritional circles.But recent studies show that the vilification of all chocolate is unjustified. In fact, certain types of chocolate could (and in fact should) feature in your diet. To many this will seem completely alien. But if you consider the fact chocolate is indeed a plant-based food that originates from the seed of a fruit, then it's probably less absurd. Cocoa bean studies show that raw cocoa is naturally high in flavanols (naturally occurring plant nutrients) and this is where the magic happens.
This is because researchers from the Department of Internal Medicine at the University of L'Aquila in Italy, found the flavanol content of dark chocolate improves our glucose metabolism. What this means is it improves a person's ability to absorb sugars and carbohydrates making them less prone to storing fat. So why does chocolate get such bad press? The answer lies in the manufacturing process since not all chocolate comes equipped with a magical cocoa supply. For instance, dark chocolate is typically quite high in cocoa and boasts a 70% to 85% content depending on the brand.
Whereas not surprisingly, caramel-layered, sugar-ridden variations don't come with quite the same health properties and should be included in the diet in moderation. This is because the additional sugar causes fat storage, cravings to occur and ultimately causes the wheels on our dieting wagon to completely fall off. Now we’re not suggesting that you should run for hills every time a packet of chocolate biscuits is opened. But just know--contrary to popular belief--not all chocolate is evil. Read more...
