Dark chocolate healthy for you - anything over 70% cocoa qualifies, however it is high calories so be mindful of over-indulging. Cocoa contains a substance called theobromine which has a mild stimulating effect but also elevates mood - www.xocoatl.org/caffeine.htm
Oh and finding a better stress reliever than food is a must. A good hard run followed by a short yoga/stretch with some deep breathing works for me. Find something that works for you. Archary or knife throwing perhaps, you could hang a picture of your MIL :)
JERF - Just Eat Real Food
I'm a Certified Personal Trainer.
I'm not a doctor or dietitian. I'm just a real whole foods nutrition nerd.
I eat mostly vegetables, fats, meats, some fruit and dark chocolate. Unprocessed and preservative free food. And it's changed my life!
5'4" Goal weight 125lbs 38 years old 2 kids
Lowering my A1C and keeping my blood sugar levels steady eating LCHF.
It seems I put on 1.8 pounds this week. I had two extra pieces of toblerone, but I also know, that I cannot gain almost 2lbs with just that. I do realize that when Iam STRESSED I tend to seek comfort in food. I mean real stressed.(example-some bad talks with the MIL, make me really sad) I managed exceed the intake of my dessert. I think its time I stepped out of my comfort zone ans stop the chocolates for sometime. It's my birthday in July and I want to do a chocolate detox. (almost 4 weeks)
Now, I will appreciate if you could suggest something to satisfy my sweet-tooth, for the coming one month. I even did a '100 day' challenge with SP and literally lost my 'taste' for chocolates.
Please, have a look at my tracker, and guide me with anything if needed. (I did have an icecream today)
