Chocolate. It’s a food that makes people swoon – and often lose self-control. But even if you’re committed to a healthy eating plan, you may feel like giving up chocolate completely is something you simply cannot do.

So is there a way to enjoy this sweet treat without sabotaging your commitment to healthy eating?

Just as with any food, there’s always room for an occasional indulgence. Whether your relationship with chocolate makes a difference on the scale is up to you. Can you have an ounce of chocolate on occasion? That probably won’t do any harm. But if you can’t stop at just a bite or an ounce, that may add up to a dietary disaster.

“Chocolate, while certainly delicious can derail the best of diet intentions.  It can have some health benefits, but should be eaten in moderation.”

– Casey B. Carlisle, MD, Internal Medicine
