Chocolate is loaded with antioxidants and makes most of us feel good so enjoy. ...Read more

I ate a chocolate bar then got sick and puked a lot an hour later. Does that mean i puked out all the calories in the chocolatr bar?

No: If you vomited an hour later, that was long enough for the sugar in the chocolate to digest. As for the fat calories, the digestive process takes longer for the fat to digest and you might have a reduction in the number of calories absorbed, if you vomited it an hour later. ...Read more
