Apparently actress Katherine Hepburn had credited chocolate for her slim figure, but can chocolate really help your waistline? There are many health benefits to chocolate according to studies, like helping reduce coronary artery blockages, and helping cells in our body, but what else can it do and will it help you trim up?

I’m OK with a chocolate diet, but will it work?

Here is What Dr. Weil also says about Chocolate

Chocolate’s polyphenols also appear to boost levels of HDL (the “good” cholesterol) and lower LDL (the “bad” cholesterol) at least in the lab. I have long recommended good-quality dark chocolate as a healthy snack, as long as you don’t go overboard. An ounce or two a few times a week is good for you, but it’s not a strategy to lose weight.
