    You could probably fit chocolate into your food plan if you count the carbs. I'm a type 2 diabetic, too, but have the occasional piece of dark chocolate. Just be sure to track it. Of course, you have to stop with a small piece, and not eat the whole box!

I visited the UK several years ago. I loved the Cadbury chocolate bar vending machines in all the train stations.

    i have seen diabetic diets that allow things chocolate FLAVORED but made with artificial sweeteners. I actually do a sugar free chocolate cake at the bakery. could you call your dietitian and ask about that?
maybe it would help with the cravings...

    Stick to the Russell Stover's Sugar Free snacks! I have to keep them on hand for my father, and when I am craving chocolate, I get one of those.

What else is going on in your life that is causing you to ear poorly? Are you avoiding something? That's what happens to me when I am trying to avoid something completely, and I act out by bingeing.

Don't let all your hard work go to waste!

    as DR1939 said ... there are lots of good ways to satisfy those chocolate cravings.

You're on your way to a whole new you...
Don't focus on what you can't have anymore,
Look for healthy alternatives and new ways to reward/comfort yourself

  Stay positive! You can do if you guide your thoughts in a positive way! Figure out how much chocolate you can safely have and package it in small packets so you can enjoy it and have it as part of your daily meal plan. Then you won't feel or be deprived and can be more confident in your abilities to guide you eating habits to meet your daily goals, and short and long range goals. You can do it. You can eat the amount you are allowed and satisfy your sweet tooth without worsening your diabetes. It's about learning how to be in control and winning!

    Nestles makes a very low calorie fat- and sugar-free hot chocolate mix. It's tasty and it provides a good dose of calcium. I'm sure you should be able to find in the UK. Look at the coffee and tea section of your supermarket. It has 20 calories per cup.

BTW, I'm a long-time Type II Diabetic and there is no reason you can't eat chocolate, you just have to keep the calories and fat in line with your daily quotas. Of course, the problem is the good stuff comes in huge bars and it is hard to resist eating it all emoticon
