    eat chocolate

    Chocolate is derived from cacao beans. Bean = vegetable. Sugar is derived from either sugar CANE or sugar BEETS. Both are plants, which places them in the vegetable category. Thus, chocolate is a vegetable.

    Chocolate has many preservatives. Preservatives make you look younger. Therefore, you need to eat more chocolate.

    Put "eat chocolate" at the top of your list of things to do today. That way, at least you'll get one thing done.

    A nice box of chocolates can provide your total daily intake of calories in one place. Now, isn't that handy?

    If you can't eat all your chocolate, it will keep in the freezer. But if you can't eat all your chocolate, what's wrong with you?

    Diet tip: Eat a chocolate bar before each meal. It'll take the edge off your appetite, and you'll eat less.

    Remember - - - "STRESSED" spelled backward is "DESSERTS

    Put “Eat Chocolate a Day” at the top of your list of things. Remember – “Stressed” spelled backward is “Desserts”.

    Re: eat chocolate

    Very nice justification for eating chocolates. Thank you Usha. Recently I read an article to support the chocklate and its benefits. I would like to share here for the benefits of our members.

    Top 11 chocolate myths

    1. Chocolate raises bad cholesterol
    If you’ve given up chocolate in the name of lowering LDL (bad) cholesterol, you may have been unwittingly sacrificing the sweet treat for nothing. Quelle tragique! While it’s true that chocolate contains cocoa butter, which is high in saturated fat, much of the fat comes from stearic acid, which doesn’t act like saturated fat. Studies have shown that chocolate does not raise bad cholesterol. It may reduce the bad cholesterol in case of some people.

    2. Chocolate is high in caffeine
    Contrary to popular belief, chocolate is not loaded with the jitter-inducing compound known as caffeine. Darker varieties are higher in caffeine, it’s true, but not as high as many people think.

    3. The sugar in chocolate causes hyperactivity
    Excessive sugar causes kids to jump off the walls, bounce off the ceiling, and generally mimic a rogue helicopter, right? So we thought. Two theories: It’s the environment that creates the excitability (birthday parties, holidays, etc) and/or that the connection is simply in the minds of the parents expecting hyper behavior following sugar-fueled revelries.

    4. People with diabetes have to give up chocolate
    Chocolate does not need to be completely avoided by people with diabetes. In fact, many are often surprised to learn that chocolate has a low glycemic index. Recent studies suggest that dark chocolate may actually improve insulin sensitivity in people with normal and high blood pressure and improve endothelial dysfunction in people with diabetes. .

    5. Chocolate causes tooth decay and cavities
    A study investigating the development of plaque from chocolate found that chocolate has less of an effect on dental plaque than pure table sugar. Of course, most of us aren’t snacking on straight sugar, but another study backed it up when it showed no association between eating chocolate and getting cavities. In fact, food scientists from Osaka University in Japan have found that parts of the cocoa bean, the main ingredient of chocolate, thwart mouth bacteria and tooth decay. Fighting cavities never tasted so good.

    6. Chocolate makes you gain weight
    Of course it does. Well, not necessarily. Obviously, monumental hot fudge sundaes aren’t going to do your waistline any favors, but a large study funded by the National Institutes of Health found this: Consuming a small amount of chocolate has resulted in lower body mass index each of five days during a week even if the person ate more calories overall and didn't exercise more than other participants. Hello, chocolate diet.

    7. Eating sugar and chocolate can add to stress
    A study found that eating about an ounce and a half of dark chocolate a day for two weeks reduced levels of stress hormones in the bodies highly stressed feeling people.

    8. Chocolate lacks nutritional value
    If you’ve seen any of the deluge of scientific studies touting the health benefits of chocolate, you know this is not true. But just how nutritious is chocolate? It has bona fide superfood status. A typical dark chocolate bar contains as much antioxidant capacity as 2 3/4 cups of green tea, 1 glass of red wine, or 2/3 cup of blueberries. In addition, chocolate also contains minerals and dietary fiber.

    9. Chocolate must contain at least 70 percent cacao to be good for you
    The general recommendation is to consume dark chocolate with a minimum of 70 percent cacao to reap the health benefits; in general, the darker the chocolate, the higher the antioxidant content. However, in one 18-week study, participants who ate a small amount of 50 percent cacao chocolate experienced a significant reduction in systolic and diastolic blood pressure. As well, another study showed short-term improvements in blood flow and blood pressure after consumption of a 60 percent cacao dark chocolate.

    10. Chocolate is an aphrodisiac
    The Aztecs may have been the first to believe in the connection between chocolate and amorous feelings — Montezuma is said to have consumed large amounts to enhance his romantic forays, and Casanova imbibed pre-seduction as well. Studies have yet to find conclusive evidence that chocolate physically gets the fires burning. That said, chocolate is sensual to eat, lowers stress, and may have aphrodisiac qualities that are psychological in origin.

    11. Chocolate causes acne
    Although any teen will tell you that chocolate causes acne, on going studies as far back as the 1960s have failed to show any relationship between chocolate consumption and acne. An extensive review in the Journal of the American Medical Association concluded that “diet plays no role in acne treatment in most patients … even large amounts of chocolate have not clinically exacerbated acne.”

    The moral of the story is: Eat chocolate! Alas, eat it in moderation. An average 3-ounce bar of milk chocolate has 420 calories and 26 grams of fat, almost as much as a Big Mac — and that's a fact.
