This is taken from Health magazine
Chocolate isn’t great for your waistline—two bites pack about 50 calories—but the dark kind may help you feel fuller, University of Copenhagen researchers say. They found that people who ate dark chocolate had fewer cravings afterward than those who ate milk chocolate.
