  • Dark Chocolate-How much do you eat?

    I occasionally buy Green and Black Organic Dar Chocolate Bars (70% and 85%) and eat half the bar (I have to use self control or else I eat the whole thing). Very good!

    How often do eat Dark Chocolate? And how much? Anyone here have ate the whole bar?

    I eat 20 gms of 70% chocolate a day. I prefer Paul Newman's to Green & Black's. I get the smaller bars and eat 1/3 of one a day.

      I can easily take down 1/3 of a bar of Green & Black's 85%. I can eat even more when my hormones are raging. But, I usually don't feel so hot afterward. I'm currently trying to limit myself to 1-2 squares a day, which should satisfy my cocoa love without setting my health goals back too much.

        Up to 3 squares (30g) of Lindt 90% Dark chocolate a day. I don't even consider it part of my 20%, since I accept most of the ingredients in my version of Primal

          1-2 squares most days. Occasionally none. Occasionally 1/3 bar.

          I always have several different types open at one time, varying from 70% to 100%. Still incredulous that I can have chocolate lying around without bingeing on it!

            Dark chocolate is so rich (to me) that I can't eat a whole bar. Well, I CAN but that last bite won't be nearly as enjoyable as the first few. I keep a variety in the fridge and we usually have one or two open at any given point. I usually break off a section or two of a bar for a snack or dessert. Occasionally I'll eat a 1/2 or 1/3 of a bar. Usually it's a nibble here or there. Before I truly kicked the sugar habit, I ate too much dark chocolate...mostly pre-menstrually.

              I will have 1-2 squares of Ghirardelli dark chocolate per day. Ranges from 60%-86% (it's an assortment of dark chocolate squares). Mmmm....makes me want some right now!

                I eat a square or two most days, just enough to satisfy me. I can't eat more than 3 squares a day of the dark stuff though.

                    Maybe a bar a month (all at once).

                      when we switched to primal, it became a "go to' quick food--so about 2 squares a day. but, now i'm tired of it, so i carry it around like a security blanket, but do not eat it. i generally find that i don't need a 'snack.'

                      so, we are down to the usual 1-2 squares per week now?

                        The dark chocolate I get comes in a bunch of little 25g bars. I eat half a bar at a time, two or three times a week.

                          I keep hoping that if I'm Primal long enough I'll develop a taste for dark chocolate. So far, no dice. I'm still a milk chocolate gal.

                            1/4 of a bar maybe twice a week. 80% dark chocolate. It was the top brand that Mark himself reviewed and recommended on a blog post he did about chocolate consumption.

                            People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.
