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!
Zone diet on and off for several years....worked, but too much focus on exact meal composition

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.
A few squares once a week/month or so.
