I love chocolate so much I hate myself

Depressed? Or a bit mopey?
It's mostly because you eat more chocolate than happier people according to new research undertaken by the University of California, San Diego, and reported by Reuters today.
"Depressed mood was significantly related to higher chocolate consumption," says Dr. Natalie Rose of the University of California, who studied chocolate consumption in almost a thousand men and women.
The links between feeling blue and stuffing cream eggs in your gullet are plain as day according to Rose & co. I'll paraphrase some of the findings ...
*The mood uplift delivered by a full whack of choc can be great but it leaves you lower than before once it has worn off. Like crack, it's a short high which leaves the user depleted. See Easter Day 11.30 am.
*Scoffing your own bodyweight in choc can make you feel (and look) fat. Fatness is also (obviously) linked to depression.
