    Hello Akash,
    Thank you for the informative and well-written article above. I am a frequent reader of your blog and I find the information in your articles very useful.
    Though the information you provide in your articles is well elaborated, I have one small doubt. Hope you’ll be kind enough to address it.
    Under “SUGAR” section above, as one of the tips for Dark Chocolate, you have mentioned that one should try and consume those which contains Stevia and not sugar as a sweetener. My question is, how Dark Chocolate with Stevia is different from Dark Chocolate with Sugar and how our body reacts when we consume sugar compared to when we consume stevia(in terms of an insulin spike)?

      Thanks Varun for the kind words.
      There are 2 things to note about dark chocolate.
      1 – The dark chocolate should contain more than 80% cocoa. That means it will already contain very little sugar.
      2 – The dark chocolate containing sugar will lead to a slight increase in blood sugar causing the spike in insulin levels. This rise in insulin can slow-down the fat loss process. Stevia is a plant extract which won’t affect your blood sugar levels and have minimum effect on insulin levels. Plus, sugar is bad for your health in general.
