As one of the only detoxes that could affect pretty much everyone in the UK (and beyond), the act of giving up chocolate seems punishing for many – but the British Heart Foundation has combined charity with the health benefits of such an act with its DECHOX initiative.
The goal’s pretty simple: don’t eat chocolate for a month, and raise money (and awareness) for heart problems, as well as research that could save lives. In past events, as much as £1 million has been raised by the thousands that have taken part. Just remember that if you’re taking part, “even the chocolate sprinkles on your cappuccino” are off limits. Cocoa is a no-no!
