I am learning how to eat slowly and enjoy my food, including chocolate. If the food is kept out of site, I will generally forget about it. So you may be on something by having it in the freezer.

I like having my chocolate for breakfast once or twice a week - and I cant settle for just 1-2 squares, I'll eat half the bar :) no guilt here!

Yes! I'll savor my treats, the kettle corn or cookie.

I let a square or two of 85% dark chocolate slowly melt on my tongue after every meal. What can I say I love dessert!

Nachtskai, that sounds like an excellent plan.

I am trying to savor a lot of the foods I eat. Tasting it, thinking about how it tastes and how good it is. I'm finding it helps curb my cravings.

As for chocolate, I like it, but I like it best mixed with other stuff, so I'll add cocoa powder to a smoothie or use fiber one chocolate cereal for a topping for yogurt. As soon as I have room in my freezer I'm going to make some higher fiver lower sugar brownie bites and freeze them so I can pull out one to have for a snack.

I buy a bag of chocolates containing small pieces. This way I can control how much chocolate I eat. I keep them in the freezer so I don't see them every day. I love dark chocolate and every now and then I get a hunger for white chocolate.
