ANOTHER CHOCOLATE LOOPHOLE!


"Counting calories isn’t the best way to lose weight, according to a new Brigham Young University study that suggests that an approach toward food called 'intuitive eating' is better at producing lower cholesterol levels, body mass index scores and cardiovascular disease risk.

'The basic premise of intuitive eating is, rather than manipulate what we eat in terms of prescribed diets -- how many calories a food has, how many grams of fat, specific food combinations or anything like that -- we should take internal cues, try to recognize what our body wants and then regulate how much we eat based on hunger and satiety,' said lead researcher Steven Hawks, a BYU professor of health science, who adopted an intuitive eating lifestyle several years ago and lost 50 pounds as a result."

You have indeed stumbled on a huge Chocolate loophole. Did you find it by Googling "Chocolate Loophole" or what. This part applies to you specifically. :)

“And that’s scary for people who say, ‘If I abandon my diet rules, then I’ll fill a pillowcase full of M&M’s, dive into it and never come up again. That’s what I crave, I know that’s what I crave, that’s all I will always crave.’ But that’s not the reality. The reality is that our bodies crave good nutrition.”

If in the tsunami of fastfood advertising kids' bodies can remember what good nutrition is and prefer it...

Geneen Roth has been saying this for years. Except she talks about having to re-learn what our bodies want and need because so much other "stuff" has gotten in the way.

And, hey - by the way! I love the idea of a loophole for chocolate.
