Which Chocolate Is Good For Weight Loss?
Dark chocolate or cocoa/cacao powder is good for you and is quite filling. Milk chocolates, not so much. So, there are ways to fulfill your chocolate cravings and still lose weight.
A square of dark chocolate typically packs 55 calories, but it’s high in fat (the good fat) which will help you feel fuller for longer. So, next time you are on a diet, have some dark chocolate!
Is Chocolate Shake Good For Weight Loss?
Chocolate shakes can help you lose weight primarily because they will make you feel fuller for longer, which can lead you to eat less overall for the day.
It’s important that you try to keep your chocolate shakes relatively low in calories, because if you end up adding too many ingredients, you may cause the opposite effect and end up gaining weight instead of losing.
