Just bought some 90% Lindt dark chocolate this evening and had a couple of squares. Felt like my mouth was drying out! Is this an acquired taste?
I will eat the rest (not all tonight) to see if I get used to it.
My partner bought some Lindy Wasabi chocolate (which we both love) so I am feeling jealous right now as he eats it lol.

Which part of the catalpa pod are you smoking?I think tobacco tastes better.
To the OP, you don't get to call a 3.5 ounce chocolate bar a binge. It's not a binge until you have to choose between throwing up, passing out, spitting out what you're chewing or trying to stand up for one more waddling, painful trip into the kitchen. I could see 10 or 15 chocolate bars being a binge. But one, two or three - that's just a lot of chocolate. Not a binge.

Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.
usually just 1-3 little squares of minimum 70% (prefer 85%). Then there are those days when I melt some grassfed butter with half a bar, add some coconut milk, maybe a tiny bit of honey...... mmmmmmm.... paleo dessert..... great post workout snack!

One or two squares of 85 to 90% is typical for me. I just got some Lindt 90% today after not having any for a few weeks. When I first tried 90% I was like Whoa!! I was shocked by the intensity and lesser sweetness than 85%. Now I actually prefer it. Once you accept the flavor for what it is and not expect it to be sweet the taste and intensity is very pleasant.
i eat a row (40g - 100cal) of 85% camino or green & blacks every 2 days or so. last night i had 2 rows...sometimes none.
i can easily eat half a bar, which is pretty good considering i could eat a whole bar in a flash of milk choc based bars back in the day (being last year). whether an amount is "good" or "bad" just depends on you and where you're trying to be.
