6. Dark Chocolate

Dark chocolate is enriched with flavonoids that are helpful in reducing insulin resistance, dropping insulin levels, improving insulin sensitivity, and suppressing carvings.

According to a research study from University of Copenhagen (2008), it was found that individuals who consumed dark chocolate felt less hungry as compared to those individuals who ate white chocolates.

Flavonoids can also reduce stroke risk, heart attack risk and high blood pressure.
