In a study with 1000 people, researchers found that frequent chocolate eaters had lower BMI, a measurement of height and weight that estimates obesity. The average person in this study ate chocolate twice a week, but the skinnier among them ate chocolate significantly more often than that.
The key here is the frequency. The researchers don't recommend going hog wild with the amount of chocolate you eat.
Some researchers suspect that the magic ingredient might be the antioxidants found in the chocolate. Max out your benefit by choosing a dark chocolate. It will contain more antioxidants and less sugar.
