CHOCOLATE CAN HELP YOU LOSE WEIGHT? No WAY! Yes WAY!! Check this out: "Researchers have identified the specific ingredient in chocolate that may be most responsible for its newly recognized weight loss and anti-diabetes benefits."
My cook actually makes me Paleo chocolate cake every week. Its a bitter-sweet delight. No sugar, no refined flour, no bad oil. But, I never knew chocolate was that much more.
But...there's always a "butt", (pun intended). Here are the guidelines:
Your chocolate has to have the real thing (cacao or cocoa) with a content of 70-95%. You'll get use to the bitterness...I did.
Stick to 50 grams (about 300 calories) AND if you're counting daily total calories you MUST account for the added/replacement calories.
And of course you will already be in a calorie deficit, right?
Parcel it out and eat it right before or with your regular meals.
If you're already in a calorie deficit and chow down on chocolate, correctly, you could lose 1.5-3.5 kg in one month. Yowzaa!
