The short answer, everyone is different. Some people can trigger cravings with just 10 cg of chocolate others can get away with more. Atkins approach was to reduce the carbs down very low (20 cg) and slowly introduce higher carbs on a trial and error basis. To see what effect they will have on cravings and weight loss. Personally, I've had up to around 10 cg chocolate and it hasn't affected me. It would be a good idea to experiment a bit, and log everything you eat, so you get a good idea of what is working and what isn't.
