I've been nearly nut-free for a month, and I was hoping to eliminate other sources of weaknesses I've had with certain unhealthier foods in my diet, since I noticed that a lack of nuts significantly reduced my cravings for buying them. Recently I've been eating a lot of cheese and chocolate (my two largest vices), and I look forward to eating both when I get back home, to my 2-3 oz gourmet raw, organic, or goat cheese from Whole Foods, and part of a 100% Ghirardelli baking bar. I feel like I should eliminate one of them because, combined, they comprise of at least 1/4 of my diet, and are by no means healthy compared to red meat. I'm looking to only take out one, just so that I can feel like I can get a treat every evening. I am trying to weigh the benefits of antioxidants in the chocolate and potential hormonal dangers in the cheese versus the carbohydrates and phytates in the chocolate and the extra protein/bacteria in cheese. Which would be a better food to take out?
