You will be all tears of joys, if someone recommends you chocolates to lose weight (yes, you need to like the chocolates to be that Happy).
How To Lose Weight: By Keep Eating Chocolate? is not a joke though. A new research claims that eating chocolate can help you lose weight. Yes that dark temptation for many, can help dieters shed pounds.
A YouGov survey, polling 2,100 dieters in UK, found that 86% of dieters lost enough weight to improve their health whilst continuing to eat chocolate and other treats.
An astounding 91% of slimmers who lost 10% of their body weight, did so whilst still eating chocolate as part of a healthy balanced diet.
Of those who lost the most weight, 91% of those polled did so whilst still eating chocolate as part of a healthy balanced diet.
Janet Aylott, nutrition scientist and expert for Nutracheck, the sponsor of the research, says
“Extensive research has proven that diets centred around food elimination are much more likely to fail. The key is to take a more relaxed approach and to have a little of what you like.”
Dark chocolate is rich in anti-oxidants and minerals; hence it’s a healthy food. That apart, rich foods like chocolates and nuts also suppress appetite and help the person eat less. But healthy food or not so healthy food, the key to weight loss is not to overeat.
