Who would have thought that eating chocolate for breakfast was healthy? However, this is what experts now state, but it is no excuse to consume a full bar of milk chocolate. There are different varieties of chocolate, and the higher the cocoa solids, the greater the health benefits. Darker chocolate is also lower in calories. In a health study conducted by researchers, the subjects consuming a higher calorie breakfast with a small piece of chocolate lost significantly more weight over a 32-week period, than the subjects consuming a low calorie, low carbohydrate breakfast. This is great news for dieters, and it is well known that the metabolism is at its highest in the morning when you break the fast.
