I’m often asked: “Is chocolate allowed when losing weight?” Recently, I did an interview on the Peter Cardwell Show on Talk TV with Peter and Dave, it was interactive and included them trying some treats that I took into the studio.
You will be happy to hear that you can still enjoy chocolate when losing weight. All you have to do is have the healthier ones, depends on the cocoa content and how much you eat.
I also suggest making some snacks that you can turn to when you have a craving.
By making simple swaps like reducing the high sugar chocolate with lower sugar chocolate you can improve your health. This is because dark chocolate contains more cocoa and this is a good source of flavanols, minerals like magnesium, phosphorous, zinc and iron. So good for your heart health and also makes you feel good.
