Doctor's Chocolate

An alternative for dieters needing a chocolate or sugar fix.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Eat chocolate, reduce stress, increase your alertness and squash your sugar cravings. Those are the admirable claims of the Doctor's Chocolate, a chocolate bar that promises to help you to feel better and maybe even lose a few pounds. Created by Dr. Keith Scott-Mumby, this product was created in partial response to the recent praise of dark chocolate and its powerful antioxidant effects.

PRO
  • Small amounts of dark chocolate can be a part of a healthy eating plan
  • Eating a piece of Doctor's Chocolate may lessen feelings of diet deprivation
  • Safe for diabetics
  • Source of antioxidants
CON
  • Sounds like it is more gimmick than truth
  • Doctor's Chocolate has not been approved by the FDA
  • The ingredient xylitol can have a laxative effect if consumed in excess
INGREDIENTS

The Doctor's Chocolate is therefore dark chocolate pieces that have all of the supposed health benefits of chocolate without all of the processed additives like white sugar. Each piece of the Doctor's Chocolate contains 20 calories and 3 grams of carbohydrates per serving. It also contains the amino acid, L-theanine, that is believed to help reduce stress and the sugar alcohol, xylitol, as well as a small amount of regular sugar, fig paste, and raspberry juice.

ADMINISTRATION

The Doctor's Chocolate recommended dosage is twice daily in the morning before breakfast and in the evening. You can each as much of the Doctor's Chocolate as you like but be careful of the gastrointestinal effects that come from consuming sugar alcohols in large quantities. You can also eat the chocolate for as long as you like. There are no specific dietary requirements to follow. But if you are looking to lose some weight, following a low-calorie eating program with adequate amounts of carbohydrates, fats and protein will help you reach your weight loss goal.

EXERCISE

Although there is no specific exercise regimen to follow when taking the Doctor's Chocolate, those that follow the program with success, have a consistent exercise routine. Most diet and health experts recommend getting in at least 30 minutes of exercise a day on most days of the week. Exercise should include cardiovascular work with strength-training.

CONCLUSION

The Doctor's Chocolate is a dietary supplement that is intended to improve your wellness and squash your sugar cravings thereby causing you to lose weight. But as research and experience has told us time and time again, there is no magic pill to swallow or candy to eat that will get you looking and feeling great. It takes effort. Also, many health experts might find criticism with the Doctor's Chocolate lack of an exercise or eating program.

I have not actually tried this particular doctor's choclate but I knew dark choclate could help with weight loss. Dark choclate act as appetite- depressant, and has health supporting antioxidants. More choclate the darker & bitter, more better it is for your body. Try dark choclate bars such as Lindl Excellence 85% cocoa. It has been working for me.

Buy some cocoa powder at the grocery for 2 or 3 dollars,mix with Splenda or the sweetener of your choice and you'll get the same antioxidants that you get from the Doctor's Chocolate at a fraction of the 49.95 cost.
