Sugar is an addition to me and I am happy to be detoxing from it again. Clearer eyes, head, and skin all come with leaving the sugar alone. My choice before I buy is to read the contents and if Sugar is within the first five ingredients it stays there. Worked before; can work again.

Chalk me up as another reader who sees no problem with dark chocolate in measured quantities.

CARLENLLOYD, I absolutely agree with you about the chocolate! I eat dark chocolate everyday and have been losing the weight. I build it into what I am going to eat. I always start with a rough draft of my nutrition plan and add and take away what I really do eat. I always stay within my calorie and nutritional needs. If I didn't have the dark chocolate I think it would be a lot harder for me!

Good Article. Thanks. However, a note about chocolate... Chocolate candy = bad. Fine dark chocolate made with real cocoa butter, cocoa solids, and just a pinch of sugar (and sometimes real vanilla) is very healthy and nutritious. Read the ingredients of your chocolate bar. If it has more than those ingredients (besides an emulsifier) be very wary.

I eat about 1 ounce of fine chocolate throughout the day to stave off cravings for sugary items. It is like savoring a fine wine. A little piece goes a long way.

Look for a fine chocolate shop. My favorite is COCOVA in DC.

This really hit home for me. I'm a drill sergeant when it comes to my hubby, making sure he takes all his meds, eats right, etc. Same even for our cats. But when it comes to me, no. Why is that? I'm thinking low self-esteem. So many of us think we're not worth it. Well, WE ARE! I'm printing this article and putting it up where I'll see it every single day.
Thank You!

Why on earth would I want to give up chocolate? If it fits into my caloric goals, it's gonna happen.

Not sure if I agree with the one a few down from this. YES, fructose is still sugar but fruit CAN help you not eat a ton of junk, it adds up in calories slower, the fiber helps you digest fruit sugars differently.
I try hard to limit my fruit, but especially in the summer it does help me with sweet cravings. Try it frozen so you eat it way slower and thus eat less of it in the end.
