The Truth About Chocolate
Chocolate is this summer’s most sumptuous shade to wear! Chocolate is on everyone’s lips, but not on your hips…did you know that dark chocolate can help with your weight loss goals?
Yes you can eat dark chocolate and lose weight! It has been proven that dark chocolate has benefits, such as, helping with weight loss, stabilizing blood sugar, controlling appetite and reducing cravings. It also tends to improve your mood, curbing your desire to consume comfort foods.
The flavonoids in dark chocolate help reduce insulin resistance and prevent spikes in blood-sugar levels, discouraging you from overeating.
Dark chocolate is….
- Good for your heart.
- Good for your brain.
- Helps control blood sugar.
- Full of Antioxidants & can slow the signs of ageing.
- High in vitamins & minerals.
Be aware that a lot of the chocolate on the market is crap. You need to choose quality dark chocolate or organic dark chocolate with 70% or higher cocoa content. Be rest assured, OMmazing Chocolates uses the finest quality dark chocolate as well as organic, so you are in good hands!
There is always an excuse or occasion to eat chocolate though, even if it’s for yourself or a little gift for someone when your going out for dinner…that’s been quite popular too! I’ve even had clients who say they don’t like chocolate but when they have had a taster of Daniella’s OMmazing Chocolates, they simply love them and want more! Maybe because they are are made from natural ingredients with no preservatives. They have a high percentage of quality cocoa in each one and personally handcrafted by Daniella each time.
The raw chocolate truffles are organic cacoa. They are full of goodness. Did you know raw cacao contains magnesium and essential minerals such as calcium, zinc & iron. Also lots of flavonoids with antioxidants too. So you can eat loads of raw chocolate without putting on extra pounds! Don’t forget the raw energy balls too, packed with nutrients, very nourish and delicious! Enjoy each mouthful with pleasure, no need to feel guilty with raw.
