According to a new study, those who eat chocolate tend to have a lower BMI. My guess is that it all comes down to willpower. You see, we only have so much of it. If you use it all in one area, it tends to be lacking in another. For example, people that exercise the most also tend to drink more; their willpower was used up going to the gym and they have a more difficult time resisting that glass of wine. So, it follows that those who give in to a bit of chocolate may have more willpower left over for other areas.
Apparently my willpower was spent at the gym, as I am writing this while enjoying some dark chocolate and a glass of red wine.
