Three Cheers for Chocolate

Health Disadvantages

No matter how many heart-healthy benefits chocolate might have, it's still a fat- and calorie-laden treat. The cocoa butter found within chocolate is also high in saturated fat. However, about a third of chocolate's fat comes from stearic acid, which does not raise LDL cholesterol levels.

Chocolate also contains caffeine, though the amount is hardly significant when compared to your afternoon Red Bull or morning cup of joe.

The last word on chocolate, like with most indulgences: "It is good in moderation," advises Blatner. "About 1 ounce or 150 calories per day."
