Eating dark chocolate every day is good to health. However, many people overeat and do not enjoy the health benefits. Let us see how to eat healthier.
Eating dark chocolate healthy requires self-discipline. Twenty grams high-cocoa-content dark chocolate per day is recommended. People have to resist the temptation on overeating.
1. Divide, then store and consume individually
Usually a bar of dark chocolate is about 100 grams. Divide them into five portions and store them individually. Only take one portion from the refrigerator to eat every day.
If step one is not enough to resist overeating, then you have to add another step that is switching, to lower the temptation.
Try the dark chocolates in the market. Figure out which one you find most tasty plus a less tasty one.
Serve the less tasty one throughout the year. Make the most tasty one available occasionally, such as for a celebration.
Stick to 20 grams per day with reasonable flexibility. If you have already eaten equivalents, such as dark chocolate cake, skip the portion for that day.
4. Consult doctor
Successive consumption for two weeks, stress hormones such as cortical will decrease. High-cocoa-content of chocolate has a lot of antioxidants that are good to the blood vessel, lowering the blood pressure and the risk of heart disease. Consult doctor to make sure these health benefits work on you and no side effect. Otherwise, forsake dark chocolate and try some other foods to attain the same health benefits.
No matter how beneficial a food to us, eat the appropriate amount is required. Eat dark chocolate in a healthier way to enjoy the health benefits without being over-addictive to it.
