    I don't believe it. I eat 3923572394^3 bars of chocolate and I'm slightly overweight.

    Well, it might be true. If I ate three caramel bars a day I'd end up being the size of a small car.

    Looks to me as though the original study is talking about small pieces of good quality dark chocolate. Most American chocolate is crap, dove included, unfortunately.

    Also, looks as though it maybe an issue with people who are capable of eating in moderation, rather then the chocolate itself. Causation vs correlation.

    It would go somewhere towards explaining why my boyfriend is so skinny! Seriously though, research based on a survay shouldn't be taken too seriously. As Dez pointed out, these are people who exercise at least 3 times a week, so probably have good discipline. Chocolate in moderation probably is good for you. Especially dark chocolate is a great source of iron and until I got bored of the taste, I was eating a piece daily because I convinced myself I had an iron deficiency.

    I really think it comes down to just eating a wide range of foods, trying to stick to healthier choices and getting plenty fruit, veg and water. So long as you keep active and don't overdo any unhealthy habits, it should all balance out. I'm pretty tired of obsessing over nutrition and worrying if I'm getting it wrong. I'm gonna try to give way less of a damn about my diet. It occured to me that the Wheel is turning bloody fast.. or in otherwords, life's too short! It's not that I'm scared of growing old.. it's just that when the lines appear, I hope they're smile lines!

    I'm with Deseret on this one - the study is referring to high quality dark (probably 80% and higher) chocolate. Anything lower is just shit. Look at the ingredient list of any chocolate below 80% - sugar is the first ingredient. Sometimes you're lucky and it's the second.

    Go 90% dark. That stuff tastes like cocoa, but oh god, is it delicious (I'm a bit of a dark cocoa fiend. I make hot cocoa without sweetener.)
