    I read recently a small amount of dark chocolate every day is actually good for you. I'm no expert, but I don't think I need to be to tell you that, no, splurging on chocolate is not ok.

    Moderation is always the key. I would never "splurge" though. As long as it is not an everyday thing, I wouldn't worry too much. Of course, if you are training for competitions or serious events, I wouldn't eat it period.

    I believe dark chocolate like 70+% cocoa is the best for you. But then again, it's still very high in saturated fat. I try my hardest to just not eat the shit that is unhealthy, even just for a treat.

    Once in a while though, go for it. Life's to short to miss out on the things you love...even chocolate.
