I'm really not kidding when I say I'm addicted to chocolate.
But when I heard that dark chocolate was better for you, well, I had to see if I could "adapt" to the taste.
I can say, with absolute certainty, that those taste buds have been forever converted.

I've always loved chocolate. But lately, I've realized that I cannot go a single day without it. I honestly cannot remember the last day I didn't have some sort of the sweet stuff.
This makes losing weight a bit harder since chocolate contains fat. But in the past, I've successfully stuck to one serving of chocolate a day and lost weight.
The problem now, however, is that with moving to a new place and all the hassle that entails, I tend to deviate from one serving and make it closer to two. One serving of Dove Dark Chocolate is five pieces. Sometimes I stretch it to six or seven. Whoops.
I blame the stress.
However, dark chocolate (in moderation) is actually good for you.
So, I guess I'm just being really good to myself, right? :-)
