Almost half of American women crave chocolate on a regular basis. There have been many theories to explain why, ranging from magnesium deficiency to mood swings. But one thing is certain: Downing a candy bar is a quick way to add a couple hundred extra calories to your day.
Better Bet: Have a small square of high-cocoa dark chocolate. It has less fat than a typical candy bar and may be good for the heart. One of my personal favorites is Vitalicious. They have cakes, muffins, brownies and all of them are supercharged with a healthy dose of vitamins and fiber. All while dialing down the fat and calories.
