I’ve been married for over 13 years and can you guess what Mrs W love

Yes – Alfie (our dog)

Yes – me and the kids

Yes – Man Utd ( more about that one:)

But also that brown stuff you put in your mouth


But did you know that eating chocolate can actually help you LOSE belly fat?

Now, that’s not a license to go and eat 1kg of dairy milk…..I’m talking about the dark stuff –  at least 70%+ cacao (you’ll see this on the label). Why?

You see, chocolate that is more than 70% cocoa is high in a special compound called theobromine (sorry about the boring sciencey noun) and theobromine has been shown to have some unique fat loss properties.

For one, it helps with appetite control and suppression, so, rather than sit there with a tub of Haagen Daaz and get through the whole lot, eat just two or three squares of dark and you’ll feel done.

Moreover, theobromine increases fat burning

So, next time you’re in the mood for a little something sweet, grab a square or two of dark chocolate.

And while we’re at it, here’s even BETTER news when it comes to burning maximum flab, particularly around your waistline.

You see, believe it or not, there’s a a way to burn fat around your tummy,  which is simple, doesn’t mean you have to spend hours in the gym,  and you can still have chocolate and wine.
