It is known that alcohol and narcotics create addiction, but the chocolate addiction can be treated easily.
Yes, chocolate contains substances that creates addiction. Besides sugar and stimulative substances (like caffeine), the chocolate contains many fats, which explains why chocolate addiction often leads to fatness. This is a low fat diet with few calories, that takes into consideration the needs of those who are addicted to chocolate. Thanks to it you will understand why you cannot fight your appetite and why you cannot change your manners as an ”chocoholic”, and so you will eat less chocolate than usual.
First of all, you have to answer some questions in order to establish what kind of ”chocoholic” fits your profile:
The romantic type who sees chocolate as a substitute for affection;
The gready hidden type who refuses to eat chocolate in public, but who eats an excessive amount of chocolate when he is alone;
The type that seeks comfort, who eats chocolate when he’s stressed or discontent;
The weekend type who eats chocolate only in his free days;
The addicted to sugar type, who can’t help eating something sweet.
For each of these types there’s a different diet. The methods to deal with the problems that cause chocolate addiction are also different.
If you want to quit the chocolate addiction you can follow this diet.
The daily menu for the first week of the program is: breakfast, two light meals, a main meal and a snack. The base should consist in nutritive products rich in carbohydrates (boiled potatoes, vegetables, fruits, fresh salads ) and low fat proteins (peeled off chicken, red meat). Next week you can eat chocolate(150 kcal maximum).
You must continue respecting the diet until you reach your goals.
