Researchers have proven black Chocolate is good for your health. Although white chocolate is not rated highly, I tend to believe white chocolate is also good for runners.
Black / Dark chocolate has 80 calories per serving whereas white chocolate has 916 calories per serving.
Chocolate as a recovery food.
I choose to eat a chocolate as my recovery food after my running work outs. Those 916 calories help to restore the spent calories.
The sugars found in chocolate are simple sugars the same that you find in a Soda. Eating a chocolate after my running exercise help me get a quick fix.
To get proper nutrition I later eat complex carbohydrates such as sweet potatoes and avacados.
A chocolate cannot be considered a proper food but it can be useful as a quick fix immediately after a marathon.
