Eating Chocolates for Breakfast May Help You Burn Fat Better


If you’re someone who enjoys eating chocolates, then this news might just make your day. According to a new study conducted by Brigham and Women’s Hospital, eating chocolate for breakfast can lead to burning more fat and lowering blood sugar levels throughout the day.

To be more specific, eating chocolate almost as soon as you wake up improves health in a study of postmenopausal women. The research analyzed 19 women who ate 100 grams of chocolate within one hour of waking up and 100 grams of chocolate within one hour of going to sleep. They then compared the results to the participants who didn’t eat chocolate.

Based on the results, eating chocolate either in the morning or night can enhance your sleep quality, influence a person’s appetite and the gut microbiome balance. Better yet, when having it for breakfast, a bowl of chocolate cereal will increase fat-burning ability, and can also reduce blood glucose levels.

“Our volunteers did not gain weight despite increasing caloric intake. Our results show that chocolate reduces ad libitum energy intake, consistent with the observed reduction in hunger, appetite, and the desire for sweets shown in previous studies,” said study co-author Marta Garaulet in a media release.
