I go on a sugar binge every month like most woman. Milk chocolate can be replaced with dark chocolate or the chocolate made for diabetics? can the "addiction" be cured with simple fruits. Training my mind is the hardest part

At the end of the day we're talking about energy here. Whether it's chocolate, cheeseburger or an apple - the difference is just the form of energy and the amount of energy delivered in total.

A chocolate bar equals the energy of 1kg of apples. As long as you eat more than you burn, you'll gain.

There's nothing bad about having a bit of chocolate here and there, it's quick sugar and fat, both needed by the body to function well. Problem is to keep an eye on your overall intake. Track your calories. Be disciplined. And enjoy your chocolate. Or an apple (makes you feel full through fiber) to distract your mind if you must :-)

Haha thank you Matthias . Helps a lot because everytime I eat chocolate I feel somewhat guilty because chocolate is seen as a bad guy and there is diabetes in the family ... yes I think my intake of chocolate is a bit much and yes it's more around pms time but control control is key ...
