Healthy Snack: Chocolate!
That’s write, chocolate! Will Clower, PhD, Founder and CEO of Mediterranean Wellness, is currently working on writing a new book entitled Eat Chocolate, Lose Weight, which will make a believer even out of the biggest skeptic. “Actually that’s two bits of good news, wrapped up into one same yummy title.,” Clower said. “The idea that you can do both of these things – eat chocolate AND lose weight – is a happy, happy notion.” Clower said that the way to make this miracle happen is to start by realizing that chocolate is an outstandingly healthy food, rich in antibiotic, anti-platelet, cholesterol controlling benefits. BUT he said the key was to choose the right chocolate and to consume an appropriate amount. What is the right chocolate? He says it’s one with high levels of cacao. So do your heart a favor, eat luscious high cocoa chocolate! Not sure where to grab the good for you option? Complexions has you covered.
