True, chocolate provides the body with magnesium. But sad to say, if our bodies really were crying out for magnesium, we would be longing for big green salads, which provide a lot more than the small amount found in a chocolate bar.


My mum always tells me that if I'm craving something it must mean that my body is lacking something... I always knew that was a load of baloney!

Good tips in there too :)
