Enjoy Your Chocolate


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Rather than fight a craving for chocolate, I decided to ENJOY my chocolate. The difference is that I don't eat LOTS of chocolate. I get Dove squares or Hershey's Bliss or some other brand of little squares, and allow myself 2 or 3. I put ONE in my mouth and let it melt. Instead of wolfing down a giant candy bar, I get maybe 70-150 calories and a longer chocolate experience, I have been working on one bag of squares for over 2 weeks now!

Another advantage to the squares is that I can allow myself even just ONE when I get a craving. Without so many calories, it takes the edge off the crave.

    I do exactly that - let the chocolate square melt in my mouth. I also put my chocolate in the freezer which seems to make it last longer yet. It does get rid of that craving. I also will suck on a Woerther's hard candy if I don't have any dark chocolate in the freezer.

    If you love chocolate Xocai makes a healthy dark chocolate that is actually GOOD for you!
