Well, OK, maybe not all the chocolate you want, but Reuters Health has published a new article on this study.
According to new research, chocolate lovers who are trying to lose some weight can still indulge their sweet tooth each day. Really—sounds like eating chocolate may negate your efforts to exercise and lose weight. In this study, overweight participants “who added a bit of chocolate or other sweets on top of a healthy diet plan lost about 11 pounds over four months, on average.”
Hershey’s funded this study. No, really, I’m not kidding. They provided their own candy /snacks and two employees from their company are authors of this study. You can read more about this study here: Chocolate Doesn't Derail Diet Study.
What do you think about this study? I think that everything is about finding that balance in portion control and we shouldn’t eat to excess—but make sure to exercise consistently and eat a healthy diet. Please feel free to share your thoughts. We’d love to hear from you.
