FLASH: Dark Chocolate May Help You Lose Weight
Studies have found that eating chocolate 20 mins before and 5 mins after lunch and dinner have been shown to cut your appetite by up to 50%. As the flavonoids help decrease the potential for insulin resistance.
It also contains healthy fats, which slow the absorption of sugar into the bloodstream. This helps prevent an insulin spike, which directs sugar straight into your fat cells.
However, the experts do not recommend going out and eating a lot of chocolate if you are trying to lose weight, but it can be an effective weight loss tool if used right. Each helping should be no bigger than the end of your thumb though.
Research suggests chocolate may boost your memory, reaction time, attention span, and problem solving abilities by increasing blood flow to your brain. So the next time you need to take a test, have some for an extra brain boost
