Tip of the day #1: CHOCOLATE A lot of chocolate is very high in fat and sugars and is great at getting you to eat more and more. Giving into this can often open the floodgates to overeating with the chocolate! You ever just demolish a packet of chocolates without even realising? Here’s why… When you eat chocolate, the same chemical is being released as to when you are in love. Your brain’s pleasure chemicals, also known as endorphins tend to increase. Chocolate also contains tryptophan, needed to produce serotonin, another one of our feel good hormones. No wonder chocolate is one of the most turned to comfort food. It’s like a drug! Have a great day!
