The Chocolate Diet

The chocolate diet? That sounds like an oxymoron doesn’t it? In my world i could never put the words chocolate and diet in the same sentence but truth it seems is stranger than fiction and there is a diet that based around eating chocolate. The Chocolate Diet is an attractive Fad Diet because it includes everyone’s favorite food, i mean, who doesn’t love chocolate? Besides Chocolate it also includes pasta and popcorn. This sounds like the tastiest diet ever. Some credit should be given to Lenny Neimark and author who wrote the book The Pasta, Popcorn, and Chocolate Diet although I am unsure if he invented it or was just repeating something he has heard before. Enough of that now, here’s the diet:

I haven’t tried this diet and i don’t really know anyone who does and i find it hard to imagine that it would work. Have any of you tried it? Does it work?
