“Take the Healthy Chocolate Challenge” is based on a new study that has comprehensively shown that a high-antioxidant diet, particularly one featuring unprocessed cocoa, can effectively help promote healthy weight loss. This study, which found that overweight or obese individuals who consumed an antioxidant-rich, raw-cocoa based meal-replacement shake over a twelve-week span were able to lose significant weight, was published in the December, 2011 issue (vol. 26, no. 2) of the American Journal of Bariatric Medicine.
There will be three guest speakers at the Weight Loss Symposium. One will be Dr. Gordon Pedersen, who will be speaking on the missing link in other weight loss plans- they do not incorporate chocolate into the diet, as well as the importance of polyphenols, a compound in unprocessed cocoa, in a weight loss program. Another guest speaker will be Dr. Machiel “Mike” Kennedy, one of the doctors who oversaw the weight loss study, will explain why an important medical journal published the study on the Xocai Healthy Chocolate Diet. The other guest speaker will be Jeanette Brooks, founder and president of MXI/Xocai Healthy Chocolate, who will share her own weight loss journey of losing 120 pounds and keeping it off, as well as how the Xocai Healthy Chocolate Diet & Wellness System works.
Among the study findings:
➤ The average weight loss per participant was 31.3 pounds.
➤ The average decrease in waist circumference was 5.8 inches.
➤ None of the participants experienced any ill health from the program.
➤ None of the 50 participants who started the study dropped out of the program.
