Best Chocolate for Weight Loss

Eat chocolate. 

Yes, eat chocolate! Dark chocolate that is.

Did you know that if you crave chocolate there is a good chance you’re depleted in the mineral magnesium? What causes this depletion? Super MOM stress!

Dark Chocolate contains 70% cocoa and is loaded with beneficial flavonoids. It helps in maintaining cardiovascular health, preventing diabetes, and even lowering the risk of cancer. The flavonoids in dark chocolate are powerful antioxidants with anti-inflammatory and immune system benefits which prevent premature aging and doctor visits. 

Not only is dark chocolate great for the immune system it can also aid in weight loss and gut health! 

Weight Loss

Eating dark chocolate before having your meal is helpful in controlling your portions as it makes you feel satiated for longer. The chocolate triggers hormones in the body that make you feel fuller for longer and makes you eat less consequently.

Gut Health

Chocolate is considered a prebiotic that is rich, among other chemicals, in polyphenols (Redovniković et al., 2009). A prebiotic is food for friendly bacteria in the gut. Several studies show that the consumption of cocoa increases the levels of so-called friendly bacteria in the gut. When you’re able to create a well balanced healthy gut, you can start the process of shedding the stubborn weight gain

If you’re craving chocolate early in the morning it may be because your hormone levels are imbalanced and your mineral levels are depleted. Try this recipe for a chocolate craving boost:
