Don't be stupid. Why would you want to give up chocolate? There are numerous health benefits and it tastes awesome.
Many people may not know it, but there are actually numerous health benefits of chocolate. The real, unadulterated form of chocolate, derived from the Theobroma cacao tree, is a heaven-sent super food that can keep us healthy even as we indulge in its delectable taste. Many overly processed chocolates are full of refined sugar and saturated fatty acids, but the real stuff is packed full of plant derived flavanols, full of antioxidants, anti-inflammatory constituents and health-boosting ingredients that do all sorts of amazing things for our bodies and minds.

Chocolate doesn’t contain any vitamins or minerals (empty calories)
Chocolate IS empty calories. No doubt about that. Most high-sugar foods like pastries, sodas and candy bars contain very little essential nutrients. People who eat them instead of other more nutritious foods will probably become deficient in many important nutrients.

There is no point in letting a certain food control my mood
I love chocolate so much that rather than me controlling it it controls me. My mood, my energy level, my consumption of other food.. so this mont i gave up chocolate and I am on the 5th day. I am still craving chocolate but I feel in control.
