The Hershey’s Kiss Diet
Nine Hershey’s Kisses® are 230 calories. I know this because I looked up the information before I ate nine Hershey’s Kisses®. I’m not telling you this because I want you to “cheat” or tempt you but I really wanted a treat the other day. I have been very “good” with my eating choices and I wanted to see if a little chocolate could fit in. I realize this isn’t a good idea if you’re on a low sugar eating plan but I’m on a some sugar eating plan. No lifestyle plan is going to work for me if I can’t savor chocolate now and then.
The Kisses® are a good choice for me because you have to open each one. This takes time so it slowed the experience down. I planned for 230 calories from the nine individually wrapped treats and I also planned for 1 cup of ice cold skim milk to wash it down. The milk was 80 calories. So while I don’t think this is a choice for every day I do think it helped me be the boss of my four in the afternoon craving. I was in charge of them and not the other way around. I had my lovely little chocolate treat and stayed within my eating plan for the day. It made me want to kiss the Kisses® right back. Oh.. and it also helps me keep track the next time I’m at a party and someone has a dish of them out. One is 25.5 calories.
So how about you? Is there room for a Kiss® or are you better off completely avoiding them for now?
