Q: Kimberly, I love chocolate! Is it possible to eat it on a regular basis without totally ruining my diet?

- J. Moss

A: Absolutely. In fact, you can eat a piece of chocolate every day and still lose weight, no problem. The key, as always, is portion control.

One ounce of plain chocolate per day will cost you about 150 calories. Other chocolate candies' calorie counts vary. A York Peppermint Patty is 150 calories. But one of my favorites, a piece of premium Godiva chocolate, is 250 calories.
