    Is having around 1/2 mugs of hot chocolate every day bad for you? If so, how bad is it? Is it worse than the same amount of regular tea/coffee?

    Chocolate is 'more bad' for you than, say, broccoli

    but a mug of hot chocolate a day will not do anything other than slightly dehydrate you, possibly affect your sleep if you're caffeine-sensitive and have it late at night, and maybe affect your cut. So yeah buh-bye six-pack. But if you're cutting then you should know more than most people our age about good nutrition already

    I mean, compared to tea/coffee, how bad is it?

    significantly more calorific than any tea and black/plain coffee. Higher level of saturated fat and sugar. Probably slightly more dehydrating. But contains slightly more calcium than Earl Grey which contains tannins that prevent calcium absorption. Equally caffeinated to coffee, moreso than green tea.

    When in doubt green tea or water!

    If you're determined to have coffee...depends how you like it, black or a Starbucks frappuccino with whipped cream and marshmallows?

    of course hot chocolate is worse than coffee and tea. Chocolate contains fat and sugar from the milk and the chocolate..
    Only if you have tea and coffee with a shed load of sugar and replace all the water with whole milk is it comparable.
