›› Dark Chocolate

This is a treatment option that's hard not to like. Allegedly eating a small amount, 1.5 ounce of dark chocolate every day will benefit my heart muscle. Very good. So should I volunteer for this medical experiment and by doing so add another 200 calories to my daily intake? Chocolate still is loaded with calories. If I am going to eat more chocolate, I'll have to cut back somewhere else. Ultimately balanced diet and plenty of exercise is still the key to heart health. As usual the final decision is up to me.

Thought initially I am skeptical about exercising this option because at this point I am already about 20 pounds overweighed and the objective is clear – loose weigh, not gain an additional one.

However with my echogram test results I have not much room for discussion. From two evils I have to choose the lesser one. So I decided to include 0.75 ounces twice a day of dark chocolate into my daily diet keeping in mind to stop it if my weight will come out of control. As usually hunting for
high quality product I have chose Whole Foods as a place where I will buy dark chocolate. If you doing this sort of medical experiments it is better to make sure the product is authentic.

Not all chocolate is created equal. Dark chocolate contains a lot more cocoa than other forms of chocolate. And standard chocolate manufacturing destroys up to half of the flavoniods. It seems that Whole Foods vendors have now learned to make dark chocolate that keeps up to 95% of its flavoniods.
It sounds a little bet bizarre Can't I get more and better flavoniods from other foods? Unfortunately, the answer is "not really." Dark chocolate contains more flavoniods than any other food, including green tea, black tea, red wine, and blueberries.
So, lets precede and what is next? Fish Oil

I have gained 1.5 pounds, which I think is totally attributed to dark chocolate. 1.5 ounces a day is a lot of calories. So at
this pint I have decided to stop it in order to see if my weight went up because of it. Benefits (real or illusive) are maybe
good thing, but at this point my weight went up and I just can’t afford it.
