Eat Chocolate, Weigh Less?

BRIAN WILLIAMS, anchor:

Great news. While they aren't exactly calling it the chocolate diet yet, researchers have found that people who are generally healthy and eat chocolate on a regular basis tend to weigh less than people who don't eat chocolate so often. Experts say the reason might be this, even though chocolate is high in calories, it's also high in antioxidants, which can actually help control blood pressure, lower blood sugar. At least that's the story we're going with.
