How Much Chocolate Is OK To Eat?
Manage episode 355865183 series 2970276
We all love it. We all want it… but how much is OK to eat?
The experts say the recommended “dose” is approximately 1 to 2 ounces/day. Indulge in anything more than that, and you may be consuming too many calories.
Yeah... that doesn't work for me.
They also say that the most useful chocolate is bitter and contains at least 60% cocoa. Cocoa beans are rich in dietary fiber and magnesium, therefore, it promotes the release of endorphins and serotonin, which are necessary to combat stress.
But white chocolate is my favorite.
In today’s episode, we are going to break down how to balance what the experts say, and what our heart wants! In true Empowered Eating form, we are going to unpack this question and leave you with an answer customized to you!
