We all have our share of them—those spots on our bodies where fat loves to hang out. For some, it might be areas in the lower body with lovely nicknames like "bubble butt," "thunder thighs," "cankles," "saddlebags," "love handles" or "FUPA" (you'll have to look that one up).Then there's that fat which accumulates in areas above the belly, known affectionately as "bat wings" or "turkey neck."Not. Funny.

Here's some good news for all of you who received dark chocolate for Valentine's Day: You're eating something that is heart-healthy. The flavonoids found in dark chocolate are friendly to your vascular health and can lower blood pressure, improve blood flow to your brain and heart and make blood platelets less sticky and able to clot.
