It’s been discovered by Italian scientists that chocolate is good for you, yes, GOOD for you. I propose to eat some, well quite a lot, maybe just this week for purely scientific reasons (nothing to do with Christmas whatsoever) to prove or disprove this theory. It’s quite a sacrifice as I really can’t stand the stuff.

……no really.

From the first article:

"Dark chocolate contains antioxidants, but also a lot of fat and calories.

"People who want to add some chocolate to their diet need to subtract an equivalents amount of calories by cutting back on other foods to avoid weight gain."

In other words, to get some anti-oxidants, get rid of some real food that has (or should have) far more that a single health benefit to make room for chocolate. This is science? No wonder everyone is fat and weak.

I guess increasing energy expenditure to the point where occasional chocolate becomes inconsequential is far too radical an idea

Chocolate is great as a condiment-like thin crusts along with nuts! Too much just feels sick real quick for me...

Robb,

Making up for something are we? :biggrin:

I go for the Lindt 85% cocoa variety, but who knows how much of the antioxidants are lost in processing, or how much of that fat is hydrogenated? It tastes great though!

Not yet but it is always good to have some credit established.
