I think you need to create a balance on the fruit/chocolate and yogurt. I would think that restriction will lead to a binge down the road. I tried the VLC and after a while just craved fruit.
At any rate, I try and combine fruit with fat. So, berries with whipped cream is about the best dessert for me (with shaved chocolate). Keep in mind the calories, but it is the one dessert that says "OK, that was good, stop eating". That and very dark chocolate- like over 85% plus some almond butter.
I always try and eat fruit / dessert with a big meal. For example, this morning I had bacon, eggs, veggies and a nectarine. I won't eat until dinner, but if I say, grabbed some cherries at 3pm, it would trigger some over eating.
I usually eat about 2 servings of fruit a day, and one sweet. As long as I eat it with meals, I don't crave.
For chocolate, the big thing for me is the %. If it is like 70% with hazelnuts, good god, I'll eat a 4 serving bar in two days. But I can eat a 87% bar.... it lasts all week and then some. But I dunno, I don't like it as much, but it seems to serve as that "OK, you ate dessert, done". Every so often, I'll make a killer dessert- flourless chocolate cake or chocolate mousse if I am feeling really deprived. That will usually satisfy me from eating chocolate for a week or two.
So, for me its a balance. Eating a tablespoon of coconut oil or cooking with excessive fat does nothing to help with me wanting fruit or chocolate.
