Chocolate to Prevent Overeating and Help Lose Weight
These candies are based on the proven practise of having a mint or brushing with your teeth after you’ve had enough to eat to avoid overeating. I created this recipe as something more satisfying than just having a mint. This small chocolate is filled with heart-healthy fats and protein with a strong peppermint taste. It’s a satisfying end to a meal and the lingering peppermint and eucalyptus makes people less likely to eat more.
This sweet is something I use to help avoid overeating. I don’t feel its peoples faults if they are overweight. We are bombarded with junk food in modern lifestyles and it’s often heavily promoted by people who don’t eat it or have lucked out genetically.
Junk processed foods are usually made by scientists in labs trying to get just the right amount of salt, sugar and fat to make it irresistible so “once you pop you can’t stop!” I don’t want to sound like a conspiracy theorist but I feel the human race is slowly being poisoned so multinationals can make billions at the expense of peoples health.
This recipe has been tested with a small amount of Nest and Glow followers. I hoped to do more in-depth research but sadly I haven’t had the time or resources yet.
If you’re not looking to lose any weight or already have good portion control so never overeat then this recipe is still good for an after-dinner mint. 70% of adults in the UK are overweight or obese and research has shown this is due to both consuming more calories and having less exercise. I created Nest and Glow to encourage healthier lifestyles and while this recipe is a bit different it has helped myself and several of my viewers so hopefully it will benefit many more.
If you do try this recipe as a weight loss tool please let me know how you get on in the comments here or on social media.
It’s advisable to very slowly chew one of these chocolate candies after a meal to signify the end and get your body into a routine. No one feels good overeating, but we’ve all done it and this sweet may help to reduce that. Overeating is a terrible feeling but it’s all too easy to keep doing.
You can make these with any nut/seed or dried fruit that you like. Dates and almonds were used as they are two of the most popular. Weight loss chocolate candy can be made just as well with sultanas and pumpkin seeds to make a nut-free version.
Use food grade essential oils for this recipe. Essential oils are expensive but as they are very concentrated only a small amount is needed. If you can’t find oils then extracts will work but the recipe will need a few tablespoons.
Peppermint oil is also very useful if you make your own toothpowder or mouthwash.
This recipe can either be made with raw cacao powder or cocoa powder. Cacao powder is nutritional superior but it is more expensive and difficult to resource. Either works great but for a deeper chocolate taste use cacao. If you have time I recommend to sprout and dry your almonds to activate them and make the nutrients easy for the body to absorb.
