1) Think about the reason behind why you want to eat chocolate

Maybe you had a bad day or you are feeling lonely. Maybe you are bored or hungry or just the opposite, you are feeling happy and over the moon.

2) Take whichever of these emotions mentioned above and distract yourself

If you are having a bad day, take a relaxing shower or bath once you’re back home, watch a movie or go for a walk. If you are feeling depressed or down, talk to friends, go workout, go jogging. If you are feeling hungry, eat something healthy, for example 2 slices of brown bread with a spoon of peanut butter and sliced banana.

3) Think about all of the bad effects

Think how bad sugar is for you. Having one piece will make you wanna eat more and more. It’s unhealthy and besides, you can get some other treats next weekend.

4) Not being hungry is the key

If you have a well-balanced diet and you workout regularly then chocolate cravings don’t happen or they happen very rarely. Don’t forget about fruits and veggies in every meal and you will avoid sugar with no problems.

  1. Girl I am always chocolate hungry and I must say I am inspired to follow these tips!! Let’s see how far I succeed!! hehe.

    1. Keeping my fingers crossed for you, Ami!!

  2. This is really sound and true advice and good to read. Yeah I agree with you sista!

    1. Thank you, sweetie. I’m glad you found it interesting!

  3. These are great tips! You’re great at helping people eat and snack healthier, one post at a time. =)

  4. Hmmmmm I’m not one to encourage people to give up one of my one true loves…. but…

    Seriously, I totally agree. I think it’s a matter of portion control for me. Nothing wrong with a bit of chocolate from time to time, but the manic craving can lead to binge eating, which is never good, but can be especially unhealthy when it comes to chocolate.

    Small, portion-controlled bites are a good idea- you can have it, but no more!!

    1. It’s all about moderation, I totally agree. A piece of chocolate from time to time won’t kill anyone, but craving it every day is a serious problem/habit 🙂

  5. Great tips, Agness! I love snacking on fruit whenever I feel the craving hit too!

    1. I do the same!!

  6. For me, the most difficult part is how to NOT buy them when shopping. After all, if you don’t buy, you can’t eat.
    If I failed in resisting buying, then my solution is to quickly finish eating those chocolates so that they are gone and can’t tempt me anymore. This is very bad advice, I know.

    1. Oh yes, that’s so true!!
