Probably wrong thread because I honestly never know where to posts these types of topic-questions. But...

I hate my body and my weight and I would do anything to lose weight, but I don't do Ramadan as a diet, I really do it religiously. But I also started to listen to my body since a few weeks ago. I don't eat for fun anymore, and I only eat when I'm hungry until I feel full. I also eat little during iftaar, but when I feel hungry again, I eat some fruit until I feel full again. Fresh dates are my favourite.
Now to the main topic.. question thingy.
I can't fast this week, because I got my period. And I decided to go on a 2 day chocolate mono. I wanted to go for a 3 day chocolate mono, but I am visiting my cousin on Thursday, and she and her mother can't fast because of chronical health problems.
Anyway, today I ate just a little piece of chocolate (Tony's Chocolonely, the blue one. My cousin and I are both vegan), and I felt so full for hours. I really had just a small piece. Is this normal? Will it have effect on my weight loss journey? Is it something good or bad? I don't even like chocolate, could it be because of that? I'm only doing it because I've read a lot of positive outcomes on MPA.
I am aware that not everyone's body is the same, and I don't know if it will work for me. But I still want to try it anyway.

In my opinion, Monos are quite frankly just not working or worth it, especially stuff like chocolate that is so calorie dense with no nutrients. I personally have never seen really positive outcomes or a lot of people doing it nowadays. Just a great way to get bored of a food and crave another even more. I think 2 days should be okay though. Be aware though that since chocolate is so calorie dense, you'll lose a lot of food weight that'll come back when you eat other foods again, but that's not fat.
It's good that it made you feel full, but I think you're more likely feeling like that because of your period and bloating, but I don't know if this is normal for you?
Of course it'll have an impact on your weightloss journey if all you ate in a day was a small piece of chocolate, I don't see why not.
Best of luck
