Eating Chocolate To Lower You Body Mass, Yum

Chocolate may lower your body mass index (BMI). Researchers from the University of California, San Diego published a report in the Archives of Internal Medicine followed the chocolate consumption of 970 men and women between the age of 20 and 85 who were from of heart disease, diabetes and abnormal cholesterol levels.
Even though chocolate consumption is linked to higher calories and increased intakes of saturated fat, the more frequent the chocolate consumption the lower the BMI. While this sounds counter intuitive, it appears that the chocolate increased mitochondrial and capillary function, muscular m=performance and lean muscle mass.
While the study didn’t measure the type of chocolate, there has been a ton of research validating the positive impact of dark chocolate. So…let’s do a toast with dark chocolate…lots of it!
