From sweating it out in the gym to picking healthy eating habits, fashion designer Masaba Gupta is an inspiration to many. And, she makes a point to share tips with her fans on Instagram. We all agree that a toned and fit body doesn't come easy. And, no one knows it better than Masaba. Her latest Instagram Stories is proof. The designer has opened up about her latest food sacrifice. No, she wasn't talking about slices of pizza or a portion of french fries. She is talking about two cubes of chocolate. “The sacrifices (having to eat 2 pieces instead of 4),” the fashion designer captioned the photo, featuring two cubes of chocolate placed on the side of a plate.
Take a look:
Well if you are wondering why even those two slices? Let us tell you chocolates after all aren't unhealthy. While gorging on chocolates is not recommended, including them mindfully in your diet can have a series of health benefits.
- The high magnesium content in dark chocolate can help lower blood pressure.
- A moderate amount of dark chocolate can lower LDL which is bad cholesterol and raise HDL (good cholesterol). This in return lowers the risk of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
- Eating dark chocolate can help boost blood flow in key areas of the brain, for a few hours at least. It can help you focus, and sharpen your memory.
- Dark chocolate can help keep a heart healthy. It can restore flexibility to the arteries and also prevents white blood cells from sticking to the walls of the blood vessels.
- They can make you feel full for a longer time. When eaten in moderate quantities, dark chocolate slowers the digestion process and further curbs cravings.
