    Default Chocolate addiction

    I think I'm addicted to chocolate - seriously! When I was pregnant I couldn't stop eating sweet things & I've continued the habit post pregnancy. DD is over 6 months old now & I need to kick the habit. I have chocolate everyday, without fail.

    Have you cut it out? Tell me how oh wise one!

    Cacao nibs. They taste like a mix of chocolate, coffee and dirt but they hit the spot and you don't want to eat many. Plus there's no sugar or other additives.

    I find it's easier if I just cut out sugar all together.
    But hey, don't take advice from me. I ate chocolate for breakfast this morning.
    It's been a bad week!

    @Phony I ate chocolate for breakfast too.

    It was right there. Not my fault.

    This ^

    Chocolate is really addictive. The best luck I've had is going cold turkey and just not having it as an option. I very easily fall off the bandwagon though. After a month or so the cravings stop.

    Try magnesium tablets. I started taking them for another reason and found I didn't crave chocolate as much.

    The only way I can stop eating chocolate is to just not buy it when I do the grocery shop. Then there is no temptation.

    I've never found a craving to be strong enough for me to go buy some (as it requires putting bubs in car, driving to the shops, parking, taking bubs out of car, etc).

    I'm blaming @btmac!
    It's all her fault I made a manic dash to Aldi (with the three kids hanging off me) to get chocolate during the week.
    I'm blameless!
    Born that way

    Nearly a year ago I hopped on the IQS bandwagon and just went cold turkey one day. For a few weeks I had no sugar, not even fruit, and then I slowly introduced the higher fructose fruits back into my diet and it was great to cut that chocolate addiction! But I've loosened the reins a bit since becoming pregnant. Who am I kidding - I've thrown the reins away
