What kind of chocolate can I eat in my snack?

A very good question from a reader:

I would like to start this diet as well. I have a question re the snack time: is it right that you can have it only after 5 pm? and how much can you have chocolate or what else for snack time? I mean, I would not be able to snack the olives…
I love sweets: milka, suchard, honey, etc.
Could you please give me your opinion on it.
Looking forward to hearing from you!


My answer:


1. You should have your snack time about 4 to 5 hours after your lunch, so it has nothing to do with the time.
2. For snack, you can eat about 30gr of DARK chocolate (54% min of cacao), sorry but you need to forget about Milka or Suchard. These are full of fats that will be stored immediately where you don’t want! However, I don’t know where you live but there are some really nice and sweet dark chocolates mixed with nuts which are delicious (Brand: Cote d’or). You should keep your Suchard and others for your joker meals!
3. What else for snack: all kind of nuts (30gr) and also something sweet like fruits, cooked fruit (example: apple in the oven is really nice or dried mangos..)”

Quantities to take for the magical snack time!

I received a very good question from a reader:

 I really like your website..
 Can you specify the quantity on the snack?
 How much chocolate/fruit/fat…??
Thanks so much”


And I replied:


“Thank you for your message! I’m happy that you like it.
Yes I know I need to update it to inform on the quantities for snack:
– 30 grams of dark chocolate (min  54% cacao) OR any nuts
– 1 Chinese bowl of fresh fruits (except bananas) OR half a Chinese bowl of dry fruits (like dates, apricots etc.) OR 50cl of freshly squeezed orange juice.
I hope this helps!”
