Be prepared for the greatest news of your life..

A new study suggests eating chocolate for breakfast could help your body burn fat.

Researchers from Boston, Massachusetts gave 100 grams of milk chocolate to 19 post-menopausal women within one hour after waking up and one hour before bedtime. The team then discovered that neither morning or night time milk chocolate intake led to weight gain.

One theory suggests naturally occurring chemicals found in cocoa called flavanols help increase fat oxidation. Another theorizes that the chocolate acts as a appetite suppressant.

“Our volunteers did not gain weight despite increasing caloric intake,” said study author Marta Garaulet. “Our results show that chocolate reduced ad libitum energy intake, consistent with the observed reduction in hunger, appetite and the desire for sweets shown in previous studies.”

It should be stressed however, experts recommend chocolate should still be eaten in moderation due to its high fat and sugar content.
