So it is mid morning and what are you reaching for? What is your body craving and simply can't do without? Well, it is time to stop eating the cadburys chocolate and biscuits with your cuppa. Instead, welcome in dark chocolate to your diet which is going to help prevent obesity. Did you know that the flavanols in dark chocolate help fight weight gain and lower the risk of diabetes.
Scientists have found that this anti oxidant in cocoa which is in dark chocolate can also help improve thinking, decrease appetite and lower blood pressure. So the next time you are thinking of what snack to have, I recommend having one or two squares of dark chocolate which is above 70% :)
