  • no will power !!

    have worked out that when I get stressed or upset I turn to chocolate and most other times as well ha ha ha
    but its getting silly and I'm eating far too much so have decided the time has come to cut down and believe you me thats a very hard thing to do for a chocoholic like me lol
    so I thought I would only eat in at the weekend , but I started this week and its only Monday and I'm craving it already
    help !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Have a hot chocolate, it'll warm you up, and you can get low fat/cal ones

      Yum, yum, chocolate!

      I think if you are trying to not eat something you tend to think about it more! So maybe dont put an actual restriction on whether you can have it or not, just try not to get it so often?

        claire that won't work as if I have just a little bit I will end up eating it all
        I can have a bar of chocolate in the cupboard for ages but the minute I open it I have to eat the whole lot !
        hot chocolate could be a good idea and nice and warm too

          apparently, one small square of dark chocolate includes all of the things that make you crave an entire chocolate bar.... I say apparently, I do believe everything I read on t'interweb

              Ah but when it calls your name when you walk past it in the shop it's too hard to resist!

                  Before my operation I used to crave chocolate loads (especially Galaxy!!) but in the two and a half weeks since my operation, I haven't really thought about chocolate... as you probably know I'm on a liquid diet at the moment, but a couple of days after I got out of hospital, I sent hubby out to get me some Galaxy milk chocolate thinking it melts in your mouth therefore would be ok, and it's still sitting in the cupboard - I don't know what they've done when they did my op but it's killed my want for chocolate which I never thought I'd hear myself say!! lol

                  I know they say everything in moderation is good for you but chocolate can be really addictive... have you tried the lower calorie chocolate, like weight watchers or similar? Or try to restrict how much chocolate you buy when you're out shopping?

                  Sorry I seem to be rambling lol.

                    When I attended the smoking cessation clinic (one of the many times) I learned that the actual physical craving for nicotine only lasts for about 3 mins and it will occur regularly about the usual time that you have a cigarettte - so if you have one cig every hour, your body will genuinely crave a cig every hour but the real bodily craving will only last for about 3 mins, anything after that is purely in the mind, until the next hour has passed, of course.

                    Maybe its the same for chocolate????

                    Its all down to the sugar rush that chocolate gives you. Its an instant hit but it only lasts for a few minutes and when the sugar levels in your body drop, thats when the craving kicks in. If you follow the advice of dieticians, and have sugar in a more natural form - for example honey - this is absorbed into your system slower than a chocolate hit so the craving for more is reduced.

                    I think . . . . .

                    I'll shut up now cos I've had a bit of alcohol and maybe I don't really know what I'm talking about but the alcohol is making me believe that I do . . . . .

                      I think once you get past htat first week or so without it then its easier. For about a month i didnt eat very much....at all. Due to things with hte ex. I lost weight and thought that i looked pretty good lol. But even now i still dont eat half as much as i didnt and its a good thing! Im trying hard to stick to it as if i start with the chocolate now il go back to my bad eating habits and put the weight back on!

                      Though my sister just made a huge chocolate cake and iv had 2 pieces....

                        I do hope it was served up with lashings of fresh pouring cream!

                          I am also a chocoholic but it doesn't last long in this house with DH and DS so if I don't get in quick it's gone.
                          Although I still get cravings if there isn't any in the house I do try my best not to buy it when I go shopping or I buy a small pack of choc swiss rolls instead which helps.

                            well I finally got through yesterday , had a drink of hot chocolate but not sure whether I'm a hot chocolate sort of person lol
                            had one chocolate biscuit today which I shouldn't have done but I normally would have eaten the packet lol

                              I'm a chocohilic too and can cheerfully eat a whole bar! When I tried (note the 'tried'!!) to cut down, I sucked smarties. I found that the effort of sucking them, one at the time, meant I only ate half a pack a night.

                              It worked for a bit, then stress sent me back for a big huge bar of galaxy!

                              Never mind!
