Is Eating Chocolate Every Day Good for You?
Does chocolate make a good snack?
Surprisingly, dark chocolate is classified as 'low GI' food, which means a small bar makes a suitable snack between meals, as it doesn't cause a rapid rise in blood sugar levels after being eaten. This is because the fat that it contains slows down the absorption of the sugar.The caffeine content of chocolate has also been shown to help boost concentration and energy temporarily. But if you're curbing your caffeine intake then be sure to remember that chocolate counts as a caffeinated product!If you eat it in small amounts, alongside a healthy, balanced diet, chocolate shouldn't contribute to weight gain and it will certainly not do you any harm.
