have you had your shake today
If you are a chocoholic, I have good news for you: chocolate contains healthy properties. That said, you don’t have carte blanche when it comes to eating this incredible sweet as it does contain caffeine and sugar, so it’s not all for you.
- Chocolate contains magnesium and this is why some premenstrual women crave chocolate, they are magnesium deficient.
- Chocolate also contains antioxidants which help your body to fight off free radicals brought about by pollution. These antioxidants are also helpful in the war against heart disease.
- Dark chocolate is far healthier than light or white chocolate.
So why do we crave chocolate?
As mentioned above, some women who are magnesium deficient will crave chocolate periodically. People who are chromium deficient will also crave chocolate.
The chocolate low-down
The challenge with chocolate is that the caffeine is not good for you and the sugar adds unwanted fat to your body. Many people find chocolate to be incredibly addictive and are unable to stop after a few pieces.
(Don’t tell anyone, but I have the same problem)
Thankfully, I found Herbalife and I can now keep my chocolate cravings under control
As mentioned on an earlier post, when you crave something, your body is usually lacking in some or other mineral or vitamin. So if you lack magnesium or chromium, chances are you will want to get stuck into a slab of chocolate. Herbalife has come to the party by producing a great tasting chocolate shake which does contain chromium. A Herbalife shake is low in calories and provides you with the great taste of chocolate.
Herbalife has also got protein bars which are made from real chocolate, however with far less calories than the chocolate which you are used to. Herbalife has used protein in these snacks to help you lose weight fast,keep you satiated and boost your energy levels. Protein is a vital building block for your blood, hair, skin cartilage, bones and muscles.
Next time you have a chocolate craving, satisfy it with a healthier, low calorie option that won’t go to your hips.
