If you’re going to eat chocolate…

When one’s goal is to lose weight, chocolate is often high on the list as a food to reject.  If you’re still hung up on the fact that eating fat is the number one reason why you get fat then I guess no chocolate for you.  If broccoli was another word for overweight then people would think eating too much broccoli would make you fat.  If you manage to unwash your brain though you can unsinfully enjoy high percentage dark chocolate.  You might not like it as much as milk chocolate but it does the job.

I’ve been eating 85% dark chocolate and there’s enough sweetness to it for gratification.  See, chocolate in its natural state is healthy for you.  There’s no sugar added to it yet.  Sugar, hydrogenated oils and a bunch of other ingredients I can’t pronounce is what makes most chocolate bars crappy for you.

The higher the percentage of cocoa the less sugar it has and too much sugar in your diet is what makes people fatty.  Next time you’re at the supermarket compare the nutritional information of 85% chocolate to regular chocolate and you’ll be blown away.  Like boom!  The amount of fibre, protein and iron is amazing.
