Don't feel bad about eating all that left over chocolate


Do you still have chocolate hanging around the house taunting you from Easter? I do and here is why I'm not feeling too bad about eating it. (In moderation, of course!)

- People who eat chocolate regularly can benefit their heart health with lower blood pressure and lower risk of heart disease.

- A Swedish study concludes that women had 20% less risk of stroke if they indulged in 45 grams of chocolate a week

- A study at the University of Copenhagen found that darker chocolate can help curb hunger cravings. Milk chocolate, however is less effective.
