New research suggests that there is no need to cut the tasty treat Chocolates from your diet if you’re looking to lose weight. According to a new study, it could supercharge fat burn by reducing levels of glucose in your blood. The researcher was published in FASEB Journal.
The research by Brigham and Women’s Hospital suggests eating Chocolates early in the day could aid weight loss, as the study saw participants eat 100g of milk Chocolates within one hour of waking up and one hour before they went to sleep for two weeks. The researchers found that Chocolates intake did not make any difference in their weight.
According to the study researchers, eating Chocolates in the morning could help reduce glucose levels in the blood and burn fat. This could also be due to the levels of antioxidants and flavanols found in cocoa beans, which could lead to an increase in fat oxidation.
Frank A.J. L. Scheer, a neuroscientist with the division of sleep and circadian disorders and one of the researchers behind the study said that having in the morning or the evening results in differential effects on hunger and appetite, substrate oxidation, fasting glucose, microbiota m, and sleep and temperature rhythms. The study suggests that not only ‘what’ but also ‘when’ we eat can impact physiological mechanisms involved in the regulation of body weight.Results show that females were less hungry when eating and had less desire for sweets than with no Chocolates, especially when taking the tasty treat during the evening. Moreover, daily cortisol levels were lower when eating Chocolates in the morning than in the evening/night.
