Sweet news for chocoholics

Heard about this a few days ago but just in case some of you have not, thought it was definitely worth sharing (bet the news’ll make your day if you’re a chocolate lover):

If you regularly eat chocolate, you’re likely leaner than people who never touch (or rarely have) the stuff.

Average consumption in the study was twice a week — that’s pretty often.

The researchers, whose study was published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, believe it may be the antioxidants in chocolate that play a role in other factors that are linked to reducing body weight.

No indication of whether the study focused only on dark chocolate (which I interpret as good news for moi — I prefer milk chocolate!).
