Chocolate: eat it to be thinner?

Chocoholics rejoice: a new study says you can have your chocolate and be thin, too.

Researchers at the University of California in San Diego found those who ate chocolate on a regular basis had a lower body mass index.

The lower BMI group did not eat fewer calories or exercise more than their heavier counterparts.

It seems chocolate's properties to increase your metabolism may offset the calories consumed.

Despite the sweet news, the head researcher warns that that does not mean you can eat unbounded amounts of chocolate.
