My dr has told me that I can have a piece of chocolate or something as long as I am strict with my diet throughout the day. Having a bite or two of chocolate isn't going to make a huge difference. If you have a bite or two of chocolate or high sugar or carbs every hour or two then you will have an issue. I love sweet tea and hate the diabetic sweeteners. So I compromise. I drink lots of water and one day a week for supper I get a glass of sweet tea, provided that meal is full of protein and good veggies and very little carbs. Rarely have I had any issues with my sugars being high when doing two hour followup check. Moderation is the key.

I agree with the a lot of the posts. Replacing sugar with fake sugar will only make you crave it more. It's ok to have sugar here and there with high protein meals. Just count it in with your carb allowance or try some chocolate milk. That way you are getting protein and your chocolate fix!

For a tasty alternative for your chocolate craving use the Atkins meals or snack bars. They help keep your levels done while (I believe) satisfying the chocolate or sweets cravings. Good luck!

I have to agree with other posters. I have found that dark chocolate is great for killing the craving. If you live near an IKEA, their dark chocolate is 8 squares for 19g I beleive. Barely over a serving. And it is quite inexpensive. (I can rarely eat 8 squares). And I second the suggestion by another poster about savoring each bite...it really does help. Stick to European sweets - they tend to use much less sugar.

Remember, it's not about cutting ALL sugars out, it's about moderation and knowing what you are eating. If you deprive yourself in ANY diet of something you will crave it even more. If you want a peice of cake - then plan for it. Don't make it a regular thing, but a treat for when you have been doing really good.
