Sounds like you are on the right track with the chocolate. Just go with what feels right and if it's not working, tweak it until it does! :)

I'm so glad you like the app. It's cool. The barcode scanning and previous meals features are awesome! Also, you can enter in exercise and it gives you cals back. Also, you can alter the cals it gives you (add or subtract) and tweak it. I love it. Hey, I added you as a friend. Can't wait to see your progress!
