Eating milk chocolate early in the morning not only reduces blood glucose levels, but also burns fat and decreases waist circumference. Other benefits researchers are also looking at could be lower daily cortisol levels which "have been related to a lower stress-related appetite which may partly explain the better caloric compensation."

"Having chocolate in the morning or the evening/night results in differential effects on hunger and appetite, substrate oxidation, fasting glucose, microbiota (composition and function), and sleep and temperature rhythms," said researcher and neuroscientist Frank A.J. L. Scheer.

"Results show that females were less hungry when eating chocolate and had less desire for sweets than with no chocolate, especially when taking chocolate during the evening/night," the researchers added. "Moreover, daily cortisol levels were lower when eating chocolate in the morning than at evening/night."
