Chocolate Thought for the Day

Chocolate Thought for the Day

Danish researchers gave 16 participants 100 g of either dark or milk chocolate and 2 hours later offered them pizza. Those who consumed the dark chocolate ate 15% fewer calories than those who had milk chocolate, and they were less interested in fatty, salty, and sugary foods.  (quoting from an article by Mara Betsch that a MOST EXCELLENT sibling emailed me)

I know you all know this already–at least you do if you’ve been listening to me–but I’m just trying to help out.

However, I feel we need a control group.   Someone who didn’t eat any chocolate at all.  Would they be more or less interested in fatty/salty/sugary than the milk chocolate group?

Because, you know, I don’t want to let the milk chocolate lovers out there down.  You take some hard knocks these days.

    I like milk chocolate & dark, but I seem to gravitate more to the dark. Maybe it’s in my head that it’s more nutritional? Still has the sugar & calories, though!

      Oh, yes. The chocolate diet! Not so sure my stomach would handle it! Good thought, though!
