Chocolate May Help Keep You Thin

Yes! Thank you, science! If you love chocolate, you'll like the result of this new research study:

The findings come from a study of nearly 1,000 US people that looked at diet, calorie intake and body mass index (BMI) - a measure of obesity.

It found those who ate chocolate a few times a week were, on average, slimmer than those who ate it occasionally.

Even though chocolate is loaded with calories, it contains ingredients that may favour weight loss rather than fat synthesis, scientists believe.

Despite boosting calorie intake, regular chocolate consumption was related to lower BMI in the study, which is published in Archives of Internal Medicine.

The link remained even when other factors, like how much exercise individuals did, were taken into account.

That the people they studied also happen to not sit on their butt watching television all day had absolutely NOTHING to do with the results. The only variable in their lives that had any significance was the chocolate.
