Eating Chocolate In The Morning Linked To Reduced Fasting Glucose

Previous studies have found that eating meals and snacks on a regular schedule may help improve digestion. Now a new study suggests that eating 3.5 ounces of chocolate in the morning may help reduce fasting glucose levels and waist circumference.

Nineteen postmenopausal women participated in the study. One-third consumed 3.5 ounces of chocolate in the morning, one-third consumed 3.5 ounces of chocolate in the evening, and one-third consumed no chocolate daily for 2 weeks. The researchers measured body weight, waist circumference, hunger, appetite, physical activity, glucose levels, and lipid oxidation.

Participants who consumed chocolate in the morning saw a 1.7% decrease in waist circumference and a 4.4% decrease in fasting glucose levels. Participants who consumed chocolate during the evening saw a 6.9% increase in physical activity. Both groups saw a decrease in appetite and craving for sweets.

The study was conducted by researchers from the University of Murcia. It was published online ahead of print on June 23, 2021, in the FASEB Journal.
