Regret, my biggest regret where I've eaten the whole bar of Cadbury's chocolate. I just feel so sad and down yesterday, so I purposely went to Giant to get this chocolate bar while on the way back from work. I bought Hazelnut chocolate bar which cost me at RM4.90 and guess what, I ATE ALL OF THEM IN 10 MINUTES!
Wtf~ This time sure FAT gila la! Why we will tends to crave for sweet things when we are not happy? Not sure about you, but I do. And I feel want to eat ice-cream now while writing up this post. Elaine!! Cannot, you must stand of the SWEET gian, else you will gain 3~5 kgs easily. STOP IT now!
But back to the question, why our brain's nerve will send a signal to us to grab something sweet? And there is a legend saying that you can calm yourself down when you eat chocolate. I did that before entering exam hall (during study time), but stop practising that few years back after I left college. =___=" And most importantly CHOCOLATE is damn FATTENING! So, trying to quit eating chocolate! heheheheh~
But who knows, I eaten the WHOLE BAR, i mean the whole chocolate bar! wtf~ I never experiences finishing the whole bar of chocolate, normally will just get few boxes of the chocolate bar. I guess I really damn emo and sad, and not noticing or realizing that I've eaten more than what I should. Sighhhhh~ I guess need to stop eating lunch and dinner today to cover the fatness of the whole chocolate bar. Sighhh~
Alot of comments claiming that chocolate is good for health, I don't believe and google to confirm, and found IT IS! *speechless* =________="
Is Chocolate good for health? Source ~ About.com NutritionQuestion: I've heard that chocolates are very bad for you. That people hurt in their joints if they continuously eat a lot of it. Why is this? Is it true? Why is it addictive?
Answer: Chocolate will not damage your joints. Being overweight will hurt your joints. So, if a person is overweight and eats lots of chocolate, he may blame the chocolate. But it is really due to the fact that he consumes too many total calories each day. There is, however, the possibility that a person could be allergic to some ingredient in a chocolate candy bar which could cause some swelling.
Actually, a little bit of chocolate may be good for you. Dark chocolate has antioxidants that are good for your health. Unfortunately, chocolate treats and candy usually have lots of sugar and fat that may add extra calories you probably don't need. But you only need about 3.5 ounces of dark chocolate each day.
Chocolate lovers enjoy both the flavor and the feeling of chocolate melting in their mouth. This combination of taste and texture make chocolate a favorite form of "comfort food." Perhaps chocolate is not physically addicting, but it can be emotionally addicting when you enjoy this comfort food too often.
There are some interesting chemicals naturally found in chocolate. Xanthine, which is like caffeine, can make a person feel jittery. Theophylline will stimulate the central nervous system, relax the bronchi in the lungs and your blood vessels. Phenylethylamine (PEA) is similar to amphetamine. PEA reproduces the feeling someone has when he or she falls in love. So maybe chocolate may help soothe a broken heart.
