Abstract

Despite evidence supporting various benefits of chocolate, studies have revealed an association between chocolate addiction and depression. However, the causal link remains elusive. Depression is a psychiatric disorder accompanied by various symptoms, including fatigue and apathy. This case illustrates how chocolate addiction decreases the daily push-up performance, both as muscle endurance and motivation to follow the daily push-up routine. As decreased muscle endurance and lack of motivation express fatigue and apathy, respectively, the case suggests a causal link between chocolate addiction and depression. Although the case consists entirely in selfobservation, it used reliable measures as demonstrated by other studies.
