Chocolate = Lower BMI! (Happy Mothers Day)
Yes It's True!
We already knew chocolate is good for your blood pressure, cholesterol level, and insulin sensitivity - but now the news gets even better.
Those who eat more chocolate, have a lower BMI.
But what about calories, and saturated fats?
Chocolate eaters do have a higher intake of both - but they still have a lower BMI. Those eating chocolate didn't exercise more, or eat more fruits and vegetables, or anything like that.
It looks like it has something to do with the chocolate itself being a healthier source of calories that makes people lose weight.
SO - Happy Mothers Day - Go eat some chocolate!
