 Morbidly Obese American Lose 200lbs Just By Eating Chocolates!

An American man achieved an astonishing feat of losing 200 lbs in just 16 months - by eating chocolates.

Morbidly obese Peter Ajello credited his unusual diet with saving his life after it helped him to beat life-threatening diabetes and gout in his legs.


After suffering a stroke, the bulky man turned to an unconventional slimming tool - dark chocolate but he cut out all the junk food and alcohol out of his diet.

Every time his will power started to fade he would treat himself to a small square of rich, dark chocolate - just enough to satisfy his sweet cravings.

"If someone had told me two years ago that I would weigh 14 stone now, I would have laughed in their face," the Daily Mail quoted him as saying.

"And if they'd said I would weigh 14 stone and still be eating chocolate, I would have laughed even harder. The chocolate saved my life. I would have never managed to stick to the diet without it - I would have caved," the slim Peter concludes.
