7 Myths and Facts about Chocolate

Return to Article
I love chocolate, especially dark chocolate. A little goes a long way. It is a trigger food for me, but only in its absence. If I try to not eat any, I set myself up for a binge.
Thank you for sharing
Thanks for sharing
Yay for chocolate!! It’s so nice to know that it’s good for me!
I've found a little real, rich, undiluted chocolate (such as diluting it with soured milk, too much added sugars, and other such American traditions) eaten with a scone with dried fruit in it or along side, with a cup of coffee or tea, is just a really grand way to start the day. If I finish the day instead with this, I go for herbal tea.
I'm glad you pointed out myths that I had heard and was taught during my life.
I eat a small dark chocolate bar every day. 150 calories, 7 g sugar. It hits the spot for me.
I love chocolate, but unfortunately for me, eating a small piece will NOT prevent binges -- it's a trigger (along with ice cream or really anything that contains sugar.) Hard as it is, I have to "just say NO."
Very interested article, I have learnt alot from it..
