In addition to nutritional issues that can affect your health, chocolate has other risks, especially when eaten in large quantities. The wonderful and enticing feeling of a person in eating chocolate has their disadvantages. But the craving for chocolate deserves only a single bite of chocolate. Even there are chocolates that are low in fat and calories; still it has oils that can transfer the fat to the heart. Therefore, a chocolate lover should look unto the label first. Eating too much chocolate in one sitting is not good for the body. Most of the people that enjoyed that sweet taste of chocolate makes a person leave into a mouthwatering state whenever they just saw a chocolate. :silly: :silly:

There are two opposing opinion about the cause of the cavities. Cacao contains antibacterial agents that actually fights tooth decay. However the mass production of chocolates that contains sugar that counteract the benefits of the agents. Bitter chocolate is better and a person who is looking for a healthy chocolate product should assess the following contents. Chocolate should has not been alkalized, not dried and cool-pressed rather than roasted, 70% pure cocoa, should use cane instead of refined sugar, and milk fats or hydrogenated oils. Chocolate is sweet and can be good or bad for the body.

A person who loves chocolates probably hides packs of chocolates under their bed or inside their wardrobe. Loving the chocolate is not bad but not to the point when the person is eating too much chocolate. Most of the people who are fascinated in the magic of chocolate turn their eating habits into business. They love chocolate and they only want to deliver the same amount of fascination to other people. Together, the chocolate business might be competing in the same industry but they are delivering the same taste that leaves the mouth of the enthusiasts craving for more. :woohoo: :woohoo:

Although chocolate's sweet, pleasant taste may put a smile on your face, there are some disadvantages associated with eating this rich food. While you can eat any food in moderation, chocolate provides few nutritional benefits and has several nutritional disadvantages that may make it a poor choice for your diet. Nutritional properties may vary between brands, so check product labels when available. Chocolate is calorie-dense. A 1.55-ounce bar of milk chocolate contains 235 calories. This amount is more than many other snack foods provide. For example, a 1.55-ounce serving of beef jerky provides 124 calories. Consuming too many high-calorie foods can lead to obesity. :woohoo: :kiss:

While you can burn calories through exercise, doing so with chocolate would be time consuming. It would take 57 minutes of weightlifting or 43 minutes of water aerobics to burn 210 calories. The same serving of a dark chocolate bar contains 263 calories, but dark chocolate contains plant compounds that are beneficial to your health, according to a 2012 issue of the "International Journal of Hypertension." Even though dark chocolate contains healthy compounds, it is still high in calories and counts towards your overall calorie intake. Among disadvantages of eating chocolate is it is not only high in total fat, but high in saturated fat. :P :P

Each 1.55-ounce serving of chocolate contains 8.14 grams of saturated fat, a type of fat that may increase your risk of heart disease. Saturated fat can increase your levels of “bad” LDL cholesterol. To reduce your risk of heart disease, the American Heart Association suggests a daily limit of 16 grams or less of saturated fat. Chocolate provides half of this amount in each 1.55-ounce serving. The same serving of dark chocolate contains 10.8 grams of saturated fat, but Harvard Medical School explains that the fats in dark chocolate come from the cocoa butter and do not raise cholesterol levels, unlike the fats in milk chocolate that are primarily milk-fats. :cheer: :cheer: :)

Chocolate has a rich flavor not only because of the fat it contains, but also from high sugar content. Each 1.55-ounce serving, or about one bar, contains 22.66 grams of sugar. Although sugar, as with other carbohydrates, can provide energy, it has several nutritional drawbacks. Sugar can promote tooth decay, and a diet high in sugar may increase your risk of heart disease. Dark chocolate also contains a lot of sugar, but less than milk chocolate. A 1.55-ounce serving of 70 percent dark chocolate delivers 10.54 grams of sugar -- less than half of what milk chocolate contains. Chocolate can have a detrimental effect on your health if you eat it instead of a healthier snack, because of its few beneficial nutrients. :kiss: :oops:

Sweets can be pleasurable to eat, but too much of them can negatively impact your health. Sweets tend to be lacking beneficial nutrients and are full of detrimental ones, including saturated fat, sugars and artificial sugars. Not all sweets have the same nutritional composition, so effects may differ from product to product. Consuming sweets may increase your risk of diabetes, a condition in which your body has abnormally high levels of blood sugar. A number of dietary factors can promote this condition. According to research from the June 2007 issue of "The Journal of Nutrition," a high intake of added sugars is a primary risk factor for diabetes. It is these added sugars in sweets that makes them palatable, but also does the physical damage. :woohoo: :kiss:

Consuming sweets can also be detrimental to your dental health. As the 2002 "Journal of the American Dental Association" explains, sugars produce a harmful acid when they come in contact with plaque on your teeth, and this encourages tooth decay. Sodas that contain citric or phosphoric acid can also promote erosion, which causes permanent damage to your teeth. The two types of cholesterol in your body are low-density lipoprotein, or bad, cholesterol and high-density lipoprotein, or good, cholesterol. Lifestyle choices such as exercise can affect cholesterol levels, and diet may play a significant role as well. :woohoo: :woohoo:
