I have been eating a 150g cadbury block each day and wondering if, on average, this is a lot or a little? (Feels like a lot but its hard to stop!)

How much chocolate do you eat a day?

I'm not the one to answer as I am not a fan of chocolate to begin with, but 150gm a day seems a bit excessive, sorry

That's a lot! Lol
Definately on a daily basis.
I do eat chocolate daily. I'll limit myself to 1 row though.

I love chocolate and probably eat it daily but that seems like a huge amount.

I was probably eating close to that daily when pregnant. I was having 2 Caramello Koalas every day (no idea why, now I can't stand them!).
When not pregnant I wouldn't eat 150g daily, would have maybe half that amount probably 3-4 times a week. But I am prone to a binge every now and then and can easily polish off a whole block in a day. That might happen once every few weeks.

That's 3/4 of a pack of Tim Tams, so way too much in a day. I think regardless of whether you are exercising a lot (etc), that's excessive. Particularly if you are also consuming other high sugar/fat foods.
But good question to ask as its hard to know what's reasonable.
Have you considered making your own chocolate with cacao nibs & using natural sweeteners? Or even changing to dark chocolate?
My best advice - don't buy it/bring it into the house in large quantities, then you can't eat it!

I used to regularly eat that much chocolate. I would say its 'a lot' though usually for me it replaced other foods/meals I wasn't eating. so I didn't put any weight on or anything but it would have been quite 'bad' nutrient-wise. I once purposely cut out chocolate, lollies and junk food for 1-2 months and felt much better physically.
Now I'm lucky to be able to eat 1-2 squares a day (so maybe 10g?) as I went off chocolate in the first trimester. I replaced it with nuts & dried fruit.

I eat a row of green & black's dark chocolate a night. I slot it into my macro's for the day.

150g a day doesn't seem that bad to me as long as you're not having other treats on top. I am a shocking chocoholic though, I once went through a 1kg box of roses in less than a week!
Before I was pregnant I would eat chocolate most days. We have those charity fun size chocolates at work (the ones that scream 'eat me'!) and I'd always get the 4 bars for $3, some days I'd get two lots . So that was 70-140g a day, for 4 or 5 days a week. There would also be weekend days where I'd eat a whole 200g block very easily. And yes I would curse myself for buying the darn thing! I was doing a lot of exercise though, running 5km 3 days a week and doing 2 gym classes a week.
Since being pregnant I've gone off sweet foods quite a lot and only having chocolate occasionally now. This has really surprised me!
