Tip Of The Month
  On vacation at an all–inclusive resort? Eating 5 grams (about 3 Hershey’s Rich Dark Kisses ) of dark chocolate 1 hour before a meal will help control your appetite. The chocolate stabilizes blood sugar and will, as a result, moderate your appetite at mealtime. An added benefit – dark chocolate contains a type of monounsaturated fat found in olive oil, as well as antioxidants and specific flavonoids that have been shown to decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease.
