Though I like chocolates, sometimes I can't help but feeling guilty after consuming :( Thank God I found some useful infor/guidelines through Yahoo and I'd like to share with all chocolate lovers out there.
1. Raising the bar
Read the labels. For example, A Toblerone white chocolate bar is only 180 calories; however, this actually means for one serving, meaning if you eat it all, you’re getting 540 calories and 30 grams of fat.
So take some times to study on the labels.
2. Sugar-free Calorie Bombs
Don’t be fooled by the "free." For example Sarris makes a sugar-free chocolate bar that contains 300 calories and 12 grams of saturated fat.
So bear in the mind that not all sugar-free desserts really means sugar-free.
3. Worst Health Fakers
Just because a bar sits in the healthy display stand, doesn't mean it's any better than the candy on the other side of the racks.
So I believe the trick is still to rely on the label.
4. Fattest Bites
The Lindt Classics chocolate sampler averages 230 calories and 10 grams of saturated fat for three pieces. Most assorted chocolates have similar numbers. For fewer calories and zero fat, you can opt for candy corns. Or suck on a chocolate Tootsie Pop—no fat and only 60 calories—and it will occupy your taste buds much longer than these three sampler nibbles.
So find some substitutions if you can.
