When it's time to lose weight, you probably drop anything with too much sugar in it, and keep off carbs. You're not doing anything wrong here, but don't ditch the chocolate!
A survey done by market research firm YouGov found that 91% of people on UK site nutracheck.co.uk who had lost at least 10% of their bodyweight had continued to enjoy chocolate as part of their diet.
