    Hey Layla,

    I am the same, but I find that it makes my heartburn a lot worse. PLUS I think that if I decide to be good my serotonin takes a dive and I'm miserable. I read somewhere once that women in particular eat sweet and starchy foods for a mood lift, and that we are really "self medicating" for mild depression. Feeling how I feel today, after a fruity day yesterday, I'm inclined to believe them. I'm anxious, irritable and weepy.

    Of course, that may be the high blood pressure, but I don't think so. I think it's because I stopped my startling choccie intake.

    So if you decide to go off it, be careful and come down gradually!

    Oh btw, mothers who eat chocolate make the amniotic fluid sweet and so baby is very appreciative and will kick a lot. Also, studies have shown that chocolate eaters have babies who are more contented and happier in the first few months of life...so it isn't all bad, just be moderate!

    Sue

    Mmmm, mint chocolate. Ate a whole box of mint match makers (is that what they are called) yesterday and don't feel guilty. Have ben thinking about after eight mints also. Its wierd as I'm not a big chocolate fan but just lately I love mint. I have a thing about "clean tasting" foods, have no way to explain this but raw veg and fruit taste clean so I eat them a lot whereas other foods don't taste clean (its so wierd). I guess because tooth paste is minty I am craving the clean taste of mint even though in chocolate it has tons of suger. Have even started to brush teeth lot as I love the flavour of the toothpaste.

I have had 3 boxes of French Fancies in 3 days with a chocolate bar or 2 with it!!!! That's like one all in one go each day! My bum and thighs are getting bigger - wonder why :eek:)

    I went through a bad stage of craving for chocolate, it was my longest craving, lasted about a month, then recently my craving was cheese spread on toast, i was eating it at least twice a day, but now i dont seem to be bothered about it, so no cravings at the mo, wonder what's next.

    i must be abnormal. gone off chocolate this time. Cant say that i really crave anything at the moment. i did crave different fruits at one point but i havent got any cravings at the moment.

    it would be interesting to find out who had the worst craving.

    I've had cravings for chocolate and sweet stuff and it's really starting to show now!

    9lb on in a fortnight! :shock: And I don't think I've been eating that much of it, it just seems like everything I am eating is being stored! (plus carrying lots of fluid round my lower legs/ankles/feet).

    Im doing a little test today,

    over the past few days i have had alot of choccy, but havent been feeling to good, yesterday i felt so bad that i went to bed and watched tv at 8.30 just so i could lay down. my dad is a diabeatic and he said that eating to much choccy makes you really tired, drianed and your body go heavy and achey, which is what i have been getting.

    so today, im not going to eat one bit of chocolate, which will be hard! lol but i want to see if i feel any better for it.

    will keep you posted
