New US diet lets you eat chocolate and lose weight
You can eat chocolate and lose weight!
There’s a new diet that promises to let you eat chocolate to lose weight. It sounds too good to be true, but it’s working for real people in the US. The book, Eat Chocolate Lose Weight by Dr Will Clower, comes with the strapline: New science proves you should eat chocolate every day.
The book is a game-changing look at the world’s most surprising health food. Whether it’s liquid or hard, hot or cold, light or dark, chocolate makes us happy. But now Dr Will Clower says eating chocolate can help you eat less all day. Studies conducted with thousands of people proved it.
“What we see in all these people is that the amount that they’re hungry for at the plate will drop by a half to a third,” he said. “And the amount that they’re hungry for, the amount of between meal snacks that they have, will drop by about a half.”
Based on new ground-breaking research and the amazing results of his clients, who’ve lost more than 100lbs, the book dispels the myth that chocolate is just a ‘junk food’ by revealing that it contains healthy antioxidants that can actually help you lose weight.
All you have to do is take the Chocolate Challenge: an eight week plan that reveals which type of chocolate is the healthiest and exactly how you should be eating it to maximise all the surprising health benefits, including:
- Weight loss of up to 20lbs in eight weeks
- Reduced food cravings and appetite
- Prevention and reversal of diabetes
- Improved dental health
- Significant improvement in blood pressure
- Enhanced energy levels
- Increased skin moisture and UV protection
With Eat Chocolate, Lose Weight, Dr Clower is bringing his incredibly successful, and delicious, plan to chocolate lovers everywhere!
The rules for eating chocolate to lose weight
But wait a minute, because as always, there are specific rules that you have to follow to make it work.
The first rule is the darker the chocolate, the better. Cocoa that is 70% or higher is ideal. “All of the good stuff in chocolate comes from one place and one place only – and that is the cocoa,” Dr Clower said.
You can actually find chocolate as high as 100% cocoa. However, if you don’t like dark chocolate, the book explains how to train your taste buds and curb your sweet tooth.
Rule number two is to make sure you eat the chocolate 20 minutes before and five minutes after lunch and dinner. “With the little piece of wonderful, rich dark chocolate at the end of your meal, it stabilises the sugar onset into your blood stream so that you have more of that blood sugar more often throughout the afternoon, so you’re just not hungry,” Dr Clower explains.
The third rule to follow is to make sure each portion is no larger than the end joint of your thumb.
Rule number four is to savour the chocolate, not chew it, which might take some getting used to.
Lastly, consistency is key. Rule number five requires you to do this every day.
The benefits of eating chocolate to lose weight
There are also other benefits in addition to weight loss. Dark chocolate gives you more energy, protects against sunburn, improves dental health, helps diabetics by stabilising blood sugar, helps prevent cancer, and improves your mood.
“If they brain scan people and have them eat chocolate while they’re doing it, their pleasure centres are like a Christmas tree – everybody’s happy in there,” Dr Clower said.
The book includes ways to incorporate cocoa into other foods with recipes.
Dr Clower even predicts that chocolate is going to be “the super food of 2014.” Just like wine went from being considered bad for you to being something you should have a small amount of every day, he believes the same will happen with chocolate this year.
