Is eating a lot of chocolate on UDs bad?

Hey guys... I'm a big chocolate addict! I LOVE CHOCOLATE! So on my UDs, I eat chocolate often... not a lot, but I eat lets say about 300 calories worth of chocolate. I was just wondering is this a bad thing or is it ok since I am within my calorie limit?

I would say 200-300 calories on chocolate or any treat on an UD is fine!! Especially when getting used to the rotations

WL, well, you're down fifteen pounds eating your chocolate, so my guess is that unless you're burglarizing corner stores for it or something, you're doing okay.

Different story if you see that building to 1500 cals of chocolate every UD, I suppose, but you'd know if it were getting out of control.
This is the beauty of JUDDD. Our choices, our results. Enjoy.

I've been eating treats that I haven't allowed myself to eat for over 30 years - I figure we only live once - if I can lose weight eating treats, that's between me and my fat cells Eventually, I'll tire of this particular treat, maybe I just watch the scale and pull back if the needle moves the wrong direction, knowing I can have said treat again next month

Yup! JUDDD doesn't care about the composition of the calories. Your body might not be nourished if you ate your entire alotment on all chocolate, but a treat should be no problem.

As long as you stay within your planned calories (this gets a bit loose on vacations and special days), as long as it does not trigger UUADs or binges, you can eat dirt smudged paper and JUDDD does not care. You can eat Autumn leaves flavored with grass clippings. It's all good. All of it. But, chocolate is waaaay better.

love it!

I hope so! I love chocolate, too. It always gets me when low carbing bc I miss it so and then throw everything away when I get too resentful. I plan on baking with my kids and making their fav chocolates with no guilt this Christmas! Hopefully I will lose a bit in the process!

Well, I will admit to eating 1500 calories of chocolate on a couple of occasions during the past year when I bought fudge from the Sacred Heart School fundraisers. SO GOOD!!! And I still made it to maintenance.

Well, I have been eating white fudge covered oreos and chocolate chip cookeis with christmas icing, if you must know. Then again, it's my DD. I claim the flu as the reason for my unrestrained decadence. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it!

I allow myself chocolate covered almonds on my UD. I love my chocolate and so far it has stopped the weight loss.

I credit (or blame? ) JUDDD for finally turning me to the dark side. Very dark chocolate side, that is

I really can't tolerate SAs any more-- so russel stover and I have broken up. DH can visit with him, and we do have 3 bathrooms for 2 humans in this house, but still

So I was leaning toward 85% chocolate a while ago. Then JUDDD came along, and I jumped in with all my feet. Um, that's 2. 2 feet.

So now, when the Lindt 85% is on sale at Winners (which is the canadian TJMaxx), we buy it.
When I see Green & Black's different varieties of 85%, I buy them.

Basically, if it says 85% or 86%, I'll try it, to see what the differences are.

However... don't eat 90%. Yuk. Tastes totally unsweetened and might as well just use it as such for baking.

re: how much? I'm good for 200-300cals on any given UD and usually leave room for it, b/c hey, it's a health food.

I have a stash of Gherardelli 100% dark chocolate (74 calories a square). I bought it for cooking. But, one evening when I was calorie deficit for the day and really, really needed a fix...

No! It's not bad. And here's why: being able to have the formerly forbidden foods is part of what makes JUDDD work as a long term WOE. One day, maybe even fairly soon, you might not feel like chocolate, but you always know that you can have it. That is an extremely powerful, freeing, beautiful thing.

Eating chocolate is definitely NOT bad! Make sure that you are eating healthy foods too, just for nutritional purposes but don't feel guilty about treats! That is the BEAUTY of JUDDD. I have only been on JUDDD for 3 weeks now and only have about 15 pounds more to lose and I have lost 6 pounds in these 3 weeks and I have eaten apple pie, ice cream, candy bars, dinners out, french fries, pizza....JUDDD is what I have been looking for my whole overweight life! I make sure to get in some fruit and veg everyday but I definately leave room for treats if I want them...the great thing though is that I don't want them nearly as much as before JUDDD. Instead of being an everyday thing they are a few times a week thing and that is a whole other accomplishment in itself!
