Curbing Chocolate Craving

I keep a bar of my favorite locally made dark chocolate in my cupboard and have calculated what a little square of it is calorie-wise, so when the cravings hit I can decide to have a piece and savor it, eating it slowly. Usually with a cup of tea or coffee or with a few almonds for "dessert." I have found that by having it on hand, in a tin in my cupboard, I do not work up the emotions that can come from not having it available at all.

More Information:

Selecting good chocolate is important; I buy a variety of dark chocolate bars processed locally which are really fresh. Since I have been doing this, I do not even desire "over-the-counter" chocolate, candy bars, etc. like in the past. ( I used to be a Snickers junkie.)

  • This really works for me too and I love my chocolate~ I tried milk chocolate, but it doesnt seem to satisfy this craving for chocolate~ Eating dark chocolate plus with almonds adds some vital minerals to a healthier choice~

  • I repeat to myself as I am falling asleep, "I am a slim, fit, beautiful woman." That tells my subconscious what I am working on. I am surprised that it is working so well. That saying pops in my mind when I'm considering eating that cupcake, cookie, chips, etc. Makes me stop and think. Then, I usually don't eat (I'm not hungry, just bored, tired, etc). - by RAELENEFV
