The good news is.... Yes! You can definitely eat chocolate as a treat, so long as you’re more selective in your choices (sorry, that Mars Bar is off the table!).
We love to make our own chocolate or if we're buying it from the store, always check to make sure it's at least 85% or higher dark chocolate and doesn't contain emulsifiers, PGPR, vegetable oils or any other nasties.

Is chocolate allowed on the 8-Week Program?
Our focus on the 8-Week Program is to recalibrate our taste buds and get on top of our sugar addiction. We don't include chocolate in the meal plans, but this doesn't mean you need to give it up forever!
When we begin to slowly reintroduce sugar back into your diet, feel free to bring a little chocolate back in! But we recommend only 85 per cent or darker. You might even find that your taste buds have changed and you don’t want it at all.
Is chocolate allowed on the 7-Day Reboot and Kickstarter Program?
As we're giving your whole body a reboot, we recommend sticking to naturally sweet fruit and veggies and IQS approved sweeteners like rice malt syrup and stevia. Remember it's only for a short time!
