If you are like me and have struggled with your weight you probably have never needed an excuse to eat chocolate. That’s why I found it interesting to see that tomorrow (Tuesday) is actually Milk Chocolate Day.
As if any of us whose passion is chocolate need a special day to eat it.
Seriously though if chocolate is something you feel you can’t live without you need to find a way to have a little of what you want without letting it affect your weight loss or making you gain weight.
So a few tips to help
– if you eat chocolate every day try to adopt at 5:2 approach and start by making 2 days a week chocolate free
– if you manage this you can gradually increase the number of days that you don’t eat chocolate
– chose dark chocolate you will find you need less to satisfy any cravings
– have small portions and make sure you savour them rather than just popping chocolate into your mouth without thinking
And finally if you really find yourself eating a whole large bar of chocolate or finishing a whole box of chocolates just put it behind you and try some of the tips above.
