Count me as disappointed. I was hoping I could justify a higher chocolate intake!
Scientific Method: Open-label study, with female subject (n=1).
Results: Analysis of Nutrition Facts show that five pieces is equivalent to 40 grams of dark chocolate. Intervention on subject indicates that it takes only one to two pieces to satisfy, which is equivalent to 8 to 16 grams of chocolate and 40 to 80 calories.
Discussion: Since dark chocolate has a higher satiety effect, it is possible that it would not take a lot of chocolate to satisfy, even by American standards. More research is needed to validate this finding.
Conflict of Interest: No Financial Ties to Dove or any food company]]>
I think it gives me the benefits of chocolate.]]>
