Look in the natural/organic section. I think the brand I get is Eco something (Dark Chocolate Blackout) and it is 85% cocoa and 6g sugar per serving, not bad.

I will have to check the label. I think Lindt uses barley malt so that won't work. But I go to Trader Joe's often and will have to see what they have.

Thank you Ginger! What type of dark chocolate would you recommend? It's got to be gluten free for me. :)

Hi Losing it! Thanks for the words of encouragement and welcome to paleo/primal eating!!

I seem to get my carbs from fruit and dark chocolate and that is about it...the occasional bite of potato rounds it out. I don't even miss the wheat...strangely.

Congrats Ginger! You are going to go far. I am beginning my Primal journey in June. How many carbs do you eat and do you count them?

Thanks for all the words of encouragement and support!!! I didn't know about the addictive qualities of wheat....fascinating! I can attest to this being true.

Enjoy the holiday weekend!! Lori

emoticon attitude! It helps to relax about food. Wheat has gluten, which has been shown to have a morphine/drug-like effect on suseptible people. I was an addict but didn't know until I stopped. GOOD FOR YOU! Welcome to my 180s world. :)

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it's a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they're terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

...now I know that might not be much for some...but it is big for me. The reason is because I have remained on this without obsessing about food. When I did South Beach- I lost more but obsessed about what I was going to eat when I finished phase 1. Same with ATkins...weight watchers...etc.

Something about cutting out the wheat that had really curbed my craving of food. I always thought it was the sugar thing more...but I really think my down fall has been the sugar.

So here I am - never thinking I would be celebrating being 190 but I am! I have found that eating this way and keeping my daily caloric intake to 1500 is a key to my success.

...here comes the 180's - right around the corner!
