Chocolate Help you lean

Chocolate Help you lean

In the study, the researchers investigated the habit of chocolate about 1000 people, age 20 to 85, and measured their weight and height to calculate the BMI.They found people with same height who have regular chocolate habit are 5-pound lighter than people who have not habit.

According to biochemical research, the researchers found there were some specific polyphoenols in cocoa. These polyphoenols potently inhibit an enzyme,called pancreatic lipase , that responable for digesting dietary fat.This means that the fat in chocolate may exit our bodies before it has a chance to be absorbed. Or, in other words, these compounds in cocoa may help us fend off fat.

As a chocolate lover, I lose the guilt, and enjoy my chocoloate.

PS, this study was not funded by the chocolate industry. It was funded by NIH (National Institute of Healh)
