keep it dark!, it ups the calories alittle.. but that's a price i'm willing to pay, since it get's you more good fats in expence of sugar. Elements in chocoalt (cocoa, not sugar and milk) are good for your health and your skin. dont' overdo the amount tough (to state the obvious)

I have a recipe around here somewhere for oatmeal-chocolate cookies.

They turned out only being 60 cals a piece, and are really good. Plus oats=fiber. Cant be too bad!

that Special K Chocolaty Delight commercial really isn't as cheesy as it sounds... now and then when I crave chocolate I pour a bowl of that... and I also have a cookie recipe that tastes great with that cereal in it... it's posted here under Oatmeal-Cereal Cookies I think... they're very good...

I too am a complete chocoholic.

But I've found that getting the sugar-free hard candy at the store helps a lot (I personally really like Baskin Robbins sugar free mint chocolate chip candy, it actually does taste good).
Also, keep smaller portions of chocolate around, especially in individually wrapped peices instead of eating a whole candy bar. and eating Jelly Bellys in the chocolate pudding flavor or one similar.

i'm a chocoholic myslef. i manage to squeeze in a little chocolate in my diet almost daily. everyday, it's either a couple of dark chocolate squares, a few pieces of m&m's, mini snickers or 3musketeers (only 70 cal per piece), or low fat chocolate milk.

I eat two small pieces of dark chocolate everyday. I get either the Ghiardelli squares, or Hershey's mini dark chocolates. It's just enough to keep my cravings under control.

If you live in the USA, and near a Target, they have dark chocolate bars with crystalized ginger pieces in it, and since they say that dark chocolate is the way to go, it cant be too bad. Its good too. lol.

I like to keep bars of dark chocolate around for my fix. I just break off a couple squares and because dark chocolate is more rich I can satisfy the chocoholic in me for around 50 calories. As for sugar limits, check if you can add sugar as a tracked item. (i'm really not sure if its there or not, but there are a lot of really random-seeming things.)

Ok, cool. But then how do you know when the sugar is too much? I regularly check my progress on the nutrition counter, seeing where my calories come from (carbs, protein, fats). If I stick around the recommended values for those, am I good to go?

Absolutely - because you'd have no fiber or vitamins to help your body process the sugar.

But what if I (hypothetically of course) ate nothing but chocolate all day and stayed within my calorie range. I'd gain weight, right?

Wow 30 M&M's is a cool one....know what i'll be looking for in future!!

They keep telling us to get in touch with our bodies. Mine isn't all that communicative but I heard from it the other day after I said, "Body, how'd you like to go to the six o'clock class in vigorous toning?" Clear as a bell my body said, "Listen bitch... do it and die."

I couldn't live without chocolate! I like M&Ms (30 pieces is only 100 calories), Kisses (4 is 100 calories), and other small things that you can portion out.

Yeah you can have the chocolate alright, but definately in moderation....i get my 'fix' from the small size chocolate bars....mini mars bars and that....find they are perfect in reaching that choloate high, while not being too high in calories....its true that you basically can have anything to reach that 1200 limit but good sensible choices are still important....ie not allowing your saturated fat intake go too high, choosing wholegrains etc

Check out the sparkpeople recipes. I just added low cal chocolate cake to one of my favorites. You can have chocolate just in moderation.

I love chocolate, and I'm happy that when I lost my initial 25 lbs. I did it without having to lose my favorite food. But now I'm starting to wonder, is it ok to eat it? I don't eat much of it, but I do want a chocolate fix daily. If I eat a candy bar, it takes up about 220-250 calories. But I do this while staying between 1200-1300 calories per day. Is it ok to do this? I hear so many things about how you can basically eat anything you want as long as you stay within your calorie limit, but is that really true?

Also, I would gladly switch to jell-o pudding snacks, but sadly, they don't have them abroad :(
