"Many eat dark chocolate as a healthy alternate to beat sugar cravings. But next time if you are indulging in dark chocolate make sure that you read the labels carefully. Some dark chocolates are very high in sugar," says Batra.

Checking the pack labels carefully can let you learn what exactly the contents of your dark chocolate are. Don’t opt for dark chocolates that contain loads of sugar as such dark chocolates can only pack in extra calories for your body.

"Of course dark chocolate is healthy as it contains polyphenols and flavonoids that can help in increasing insulin sensitivity, enhance your mood and satisfy your sugar and hunger cravings," Batra adds.

"Don't overindulge, the quantity should be limited to two cubes a day. Otherwise, it can add up to too much sugar and fat to your diet. Too much consumption of dark chocolate can give you acidity and also load up your diet with caffeine," the nutritionist further tells.
