Is it bad to eat chocolate as a significant chunk of your diet if I don't experience the ill effects many seem to from lots of dark chocolate? I know the sugar is iffy but I sometimes do unsweetened chocolate instead. Would I be hurting my health in the long run if I consumed a whole bar, 100g of chocolate almost every day?
    If you're calorie allowence is high I think it won't really hurt because you can still get in nutrients from other food then. Only concern is teeth maybe.

    In Asda, the UK's Walmart, I found a nice home brand with ingredients from Ivory Coast and Dominican Republic that does 85% dark without any of the soy crap, and it is only 1GBP per 100g at the moment. I've been eating about 50g a day lately but I'm trying to cut down on it.

    Lindt 85% or Lindt with grains of salt - 2 squares, not more. And not every day. Maybe 3-4 times a week. Which makes a bar a week. I like chocolate, do not "execrise willpower" not to eat it, it just comes so naturally. Thats my evening snack if I feel like snacking.

    My favourite is G&B 85%. It just tastes the nicest IMO, more so than Lindt for example. I normally buy a bar on a Saturday (although not every week) and it never lasts till Monday! The higher percentage bars like that or the Lindt 90% contain so little sugar they are basically 100% primal as far as I'm concerned. Would not personally eat it every day though.

    Why not eat everyday?

    I'm not great at rationing myself so if I had it available all the time I would probably over eat it. I don't think there's a problem with eating (good quality) chocolate everyday if you can moderate yourself though! Plus the G&B that I like is quite expensive and I don't want to be spending 10 per week on chocolate!

    Jeanne Calment ate chocolate daily

    She lived to be 122
    George Burns smoked a cigar every day. He lived to be 100.

    Jeanne Calment also smoked, as many people who live over 100 tend to do.
