Wait wait... chocolate makes you thin and lowers blood pressure?!?! HAS THE WORLD GONE MAD!!!?!??
But not the "milk" chocolate that has processed sugar and high fructose corn syrup.

Stick to dark chocolate.
Oh no, you've given my secret away why I've never dieted in my life, I eat handfuls of raw cacao nibs every day.
Seriously? Wow! Where do you get them?
Adam, you can purchase them at most health food stores and online. I prefer Navitas Naturals brand for price and consistent quality. http://navitasnaturals.com/product/439/Cacao-Nibs.html

I recommend this recipe for breakfast:
With the caveat that you won't get the polyphenols if you don't use NON-ALKALI cocoa powder.
Thank you for the tip! Yogurt + Cocoa for the win!!
