    The researchers found that people who ate chocolate with greater frequency tended to eat more calories overall, including more saturated fat, than those who went light on the candy. But even so, chocolate lovers tended to have a lower body weight.

    Wouldn't you expect skinnier people to eat more calories than people who are trying to lose weight because they are overweight? I bet you the skinnier people were more active too.

    You really need to stop believing studies that aren't thoroughly vetted.

    If you can find me a study that shows that two populations, one of which eats chocolate and the other of which does not, have an equal body fat percentage at the beginning of the experiment and a divergent body fat percentage at the end of the experiment with the population of chocolate eaters being thinner, then you may have something assuming you control for calories and exercise otherwise.
