Honestly how much chocolate do you feel is too much chocolate for the average person to eat a day? I use to eat about a medium bag of M&M's Peanut a day. And now I eat chocolate maybe once a week. I know there's some good health benefits to eating dark chocolate but how much dark chocolate is too much chocolate?

I eat a little bit each day. A few hersheys kisses and I guy the bite size bags of other chocolates or truffles that I like. When I want chocolate I just eat a very small amount once to two times daily. No harm done and it makes me happy, lol. The only way you can tell if you are eating too much is if it makes your daily fat intact or calorie intact go over the daily requirement and you get fat or if you are a diabetic you should eat sugar free choco.

I would love to have a few hershey kisses each day. But I think I would end up eating the whole bag. And I have eaten too much that it affected my fat intake and my calorie intake actually it made me gain a lot of weight. So far I've lot 19 lbs but I have more to go. But Now I only have chocolate maybe once a week or even less than that.

I too have had a long time relationship with Chocolate. I think sometimes eating too much chocolate can cause a weight problem. Well I know that's what I've caused to myself. Everytime I got stressed from talking with my mom or other issues in my life. I would go down to Dollar General and buy a 10 pack of Reese Peanut Butter Cups and a 20 oz Pepsi to wash it down. ANd than i'd feel a lot better. Like a Sugar High. But with doing that repeatedly I ended up gainning 30 pounds from it. So I think there is a limit of how much chocolate you should have day.

I think that maybe because of the wonderful sugar rush releasing those feel good feeling from your stomach. There's an actual hormone that is in your stomach that makes you feel good when sugar is released. But it's only a temporary feel good feeling. Than in order for you to keep that feeling you actually have to have more sugar.
