Chocolate

Postby Mags » Tue Oct 23, 2007 3:42 pm

I'm craving it so badly right now.
I have to hang on till Friday, the last 2 weeks havn't been that bad, only having it one day a week but right now I am really craving some.
I keep thinking "buying it once won't hurt" but I know that will mean buying a family sized block and eating it all and will probably mean I'll slip back into old habits.

How am I going to keep this up till Friday I ask.

Jarrah is great for killing the chocolate craving. Otherwise, treat yourself to a freddo. I tend to go overboard if I deny myself my favourite food (ie chocolate).
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

Oooh! CHOCOLATE! I remember that! (I think). :wink:

But Atkins' Advantage Bar in Chocolate Decadence is a VERY nice substitute and one every night for the last five weeks hasn't hurt the effort at all! :lol:

They sell them in Woolworths supermarkets (hidden under the vitamins and minerals section, usually on the second bottom shelf) and they only have 2 grams of carbohydrates - 1 gram of sugars. HEAVEN! :D I figure as long as I don't taste real chocolate these will do me for the rest of my (size 10) life. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hi!

I am also a chocoholic, although i crave any type of sugar. Apparently craving sweet things is a sign that we are thirsty. I know that its really hard, and the last things on your mind, but try having a huge glass of water each time you crave chocolate. Sometimes it works for me, but then there are many times when it just doesn't work. Hope this helps you. Goodluck, keep up the good work.

Wow, that is interesting. Haven't heard that one before. I'll keep it in mind next time I'm craving something sweet..... probably in abbbooooouttt..... 10 minutes from now I would say :lol:

I also love the Atkins bars, they are extremely delicious. I also get into the Well Naturally sugar free dark chocolate (in the health food section of the supermarket) - yum!

I have heard that chocolate cravings can also be a sign of nutritional deficiencies like iron, which might be why women tend to crave chocolate more than men.
But personally I think it's somehow addictive, because the less I eat the less I want it.
