Yeah! I saw this news article about taking a walk to beat chocolate cravings and thought you might like to read it:
A short walk can cut the amount of chocolate and other snacks you eat while at work, a new study suggests.
U.K. researchers created a simulated work environment for 78 people who were regular chocolate-eaters but had gone two days without eating chocolate. They were divided into four groups.
Two groups took a brisk 15-minute walk on a treadmill and then were given either an easy, low-stress task or a more difficult, high-stress task to complete at a desk. The two other groups had a rest instead of walking before being given either the easy or difficult task.
All the participants had a bowl of chocolate on their desks while they worked on their tasks. READ MORE
Hahaha-think it would have worked if you had been a participant?
