Summer Diet with Chocolate

Kathryn Piehowski, lead author of the ChocoDiet and a scientist at Pennsylvania State University, conducted a study with Hershey's and two of its employees, in which a group of twenty-six overweight premenopausal women followed an eating plan, losing up to 5 kilos in 4 months in a healthy way. All of these women attended weekly sessions where they were taught a meal plan with meal replacements and reduced portions to 1,500 calories per day, while adding small dark chocolate snacks to eat twice a day (a total of 90 calories per day or 20g).

The researchers commented that this demonstrates that women do not have to completely eliminate chocolate and nuts from their diets to see successful results. Plus, these help reduce cravings for more sweets or anything else that can ruin your diet.
