    Not to hijack, but I am like Kathleen...I actually have trouble eating enough calories each day. I could easily skip dinner most nights as well, at most I eat very small portions in the evening. In trying to stay low carb I am finding it difficult to eat enough. I would definitely puke eating 6 eggs, forget a dozen!

    Could easily eat a whole block of 85% in a day.... I usually eat a row then have a break for a while and go back for more. Usually I eat half the block and save the other half for the next day. I'm definitely a chocolate addict! At least it is my only food related vice!

    Interesting. When I was 19, 20, and 21 I got a series of 6 bacterial infections which required antibiotics to be taken for a few days. I think it was the same infection coming back, maybe. By the end of it my antibiotic dose was upped so much it was for 2 weeks, 2 times per day, to take antibiotics.

    Interestingly enough, the last time the infection came back, I was vacationing in Mexico. I went to the doctors there, and they gave me a shot of antibiotics. But, to differ from the American doctors, they prescribed me 2 weeks of PRObiotics. I haven't had it since (knocks on wood).

    So yes, derailed post aside, there was a major event involving antibiotics which occured right around the age my appetite caved (though I don't have an exact month/year of when that occured, just gradual).

    On the bright side I guess I get to save a lot of money on food. Feeling full doesn't feel good, at all, to me. It feels bad, actually.
    Stumbled into Primal due to food allergies, and subsequent elimination of non-primal foods.

    I love chocolate, but I dislike all of the random lecithin, oils, milks, and sugars put into it.

    For now, my favorite chocolatey treat is raw cocoa nibs, grinded into a powder, and mixed with date paste and coconut oil. MMMMmmmm

    While selecting dark chocolate to reduce weight please keep in mind few things like:

    -Make sure the chocolate contains 60% cocoa.
    -The chocolate should be made from cocoa butter instead of fats such as palm & coconut oils.
    -The chocolate should not contain hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils.
    -Darkers is better: phytochemicals contribute to pigment. More flavonoids means darker chocolate and potentially greater health benefits.

    What are you grinding the nibs with? Food processor?
