Chocolate lovers are always ready to quote you the latest study demonstrating the health benefits of chocolate.  Now there is a new study showing that chocolate improves insulin signaling and turns on the pathways that lead to improved blood sugar regulation.

Of course, eating too much chocolate will diminish the benefits.  Try to incorporate cocoa into your cooking and add it to drinks and shakes.  This way you get the benefits of cocoa without the fat or sugar.
