Exercise Helps Chocolate Lovers Avoid Mindless Snacking

December 7, 2011: 12:00 AM EST
A British study of 78 habitual chocolate eaters found that those who exercised before going to work cut their chocolate consumption by half compared to those who did not exercise. After two days of abstinence from chocolate, participants in one group entered a simulated work environment and were asked to take a brisk 15-minute walk on the treadmill and then complete either a demanding or an easy task. The other group completed the same assignments without exercising first. The key finding? “People often find it difficult to cut down on their daily treats but this study shows that by taking a short walk, they are able to regulate their intake by half."
