The Chocolate Diet

I came across an ad that said, “The Chocolate Diet,” and so naturally, I checked it out. The site had pictures of nice chocolates, and then something about how nanotechnology had created some nifty new way of making it so you needed less sugar, blah, blah. This led me to believe they’d have chocolates to order, right? Wrong.

They are selling the same, tired chocolate powdered drink diet. Yuck. What a let down.

Then, while searching to see what else was new in the dieting world, I came across the Pasta Chocolate Diet. Checking into that I see they recommend popcorn as a snack, three times a day. Shouldn’t it be called the Popcorn Diet?

Getting back to chocolate, I live similar to the principals in, Growing Up on the Chocolate Diet: A Memoir With Recipes, by Lora Brody. In it she explains how she loves chocolate and has a little every day. So do I! Well, not every day, but most days. As I still have one chocolate left from my Christmas box, I wouldn’t say I’m obsessive about it, but I do love good chocolate, and I maintain my weight so they can go hand-in-hand.

My Chocolate Diet

Hershey’s Kisses have about 25 calories apiece, so if you want, take four Kisses and attempt to let one melt in your mouth – no biting. See if you can, it’s not easy. Make four Kisses a snack, make an effort to let them melt and it’ll take you 15 minutes to eat them; meanwhile your hunger pangs are long gone and your craving for something chocolate is satisfied.
