Studies found that eating an ounce and a half of dark chocolate a day reduced stress and was more filling than milk chocolate, leading to reduced cravings for fat and sugar. In addition, dark chocolate can help lower your risk of heart disease and stroke.
How do you get the benefit without going overboard? Moderation is the key. One to two ounces of dark chocolate a day is all it takes to reduce your risk of chronic disease.
