By Kevin DiDonato MS, CSCS, CES
You’re sitting at the office, in the kitchen, or in your car…
And it hits!
You can’t think about anything else – even the HUGE project you’re currently working on.
Your mind goes blank…
Your stomach growls...
Is there anything that can ease this nasty craving?
Like everyone else, you indulge just a little – but instantly feel guilty because you caved…
And you feel like you can literally see your hips growing, your pants tightening, and your butt getting just a hair bigger.
Is it all in your mind?
Chocolate and Weight Loss
I know this may be hard to believe, but yes, it may all be in your mind!
You see, chocolate – the dark variety – may be your best friend when it comes to fat loss.
Dark chocolate contains potent nutrients that may stimulate your body to BURN fat and keep your weight in check.
The nutrients – popularly known as antioxidants – may, in fact, keep your weight down and may even prevent your risk for diabetes.
Now, you’ve probably heard plenty about polyphenols – but it’s not those!
The antioxidant in question happens to be oligomeric procyanidins – and they truly are your best friend!
You see, a recent study looking at this potent antioxidant showed that a diet rich in oligomeric procyanidins was more effective at preventing weight and fat gain.
It was also more effective at preventing glucose intolerance and insulin resistance – meaning lower risk for diabetes.
Once again, chocolate lovers UNITE!
Take Home Message
Dark chocolate – not the milk or sweet kind of chocolate – has been linked to a reduced risk for diabetes and also for improved weight loss.
The reason: a potent antioxidant – called Oligomeric Procyanidins – may prevent weight and fat gain, plus improve risk factors for diabetes.
So for those who love chocolate – choosing the dark kind may be more effective at keeping your hips, butt, and thighs slim and trim this Spring and Summer!
