A chocoholic is a person who craves or compulsively consumes chocolate. There is some medical evidence to support the existence of actual addiction to chocolate.
Chocolate receives a lot of bad press because of its high fat and sugar content. Its consumption has been associated with acne, obesity, high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, and diabetes.
However 80% + chocolate has its benefits; over consumption of chocolate is where the unhealthy habit grows into major illnesses.
Quality dark chocolate – with a high 80%+ cocoa content – is actually quite nutritious. It contains a decent amount of soluble fiber and is loaded with minerals.
