If you are not overweight you are very lucky.....then again when I
was your age I could eat anything and never get fat...
a young body is quite forgiving.....BUT it never forgets......:-)
Chocolate has, probably the 2 biggest culprits in many health
problems....fat and sugar.......you could exercise and be active
enough to use up the carbos in thos choc bars but the fat is being
stored somewhere.....I am not in the medical field....(Dr Pinckney
could help?)....but this could affect you cardivascular system in
the long term.....cholesterol, narrowing of arteries,etc.......
I know this is taking to to the extreme but I am sassuming that you
also consume other fats in your diet......
In summary, you could be lucky and be unaffected by your "addiction"
and although you are very young, it may pay to check your current state
of health and ultimately, you could do yourself a favour by learning
of the hidden and not so hidden dangers of added fats in your day to
my 2 cents
