A colleague eats one small piece of dark chocolate everyday. Unlike other women in the office whose weight fluctuates quite naturally with their cycle, hers never ever changes, she just has one of those perfect slim figures. I wonder if this is her secret.
The author - Mireille Giuliano - says eating dark chocolate is good to balance your weight, since the antioxidants flush your system, and it is good nutrition for women during that time of the month.
She also recommends eating a small piece a day, so I guess your co-worker must've read the book!

I'm jumping on this bandwagon immediately. I've also been doing a cleanse this week so it might be a good time to start with the chocolate since I'm already flushing my system. Thanks for the info. I'm going to check out the book, too.

how does one do a cleanse? i'm assuming this is nutritional and doesn't involve ... well, i'll just leave it at that.

Yay dark choco-holics!
A possible warning, tho: I read somewhere (don't rememebr where) sometime in the past year that drinking milk when you eat the dark chocolate negates whatever good stuff you are supposed to get from the dark chocolate. I don't know if it's baloney, but if anyone else has heard the same thing...speak up!

It does involve some form of...but maybe not what you're thinking. But yes, it's nutritional and I'm also taking various herbs and enzymes for a specific health issue and since it works well with a low-carb diet, I'm doing that, too; colon cleansing is one of the, ahem, side affects shall we say. I've lost a lot of water weight this week and am feeling slim and, after a couple of days of intense detoxing headaches, have high energy and feel good about myself today.

And I want some dark chocolate.

sounds great -- and, yes, the colon-cleansing was the thing i was referring to, and i'm still traumatized by seeing some VH1 show where Usher was talking about his spring water enemas and how Janet Jackson had recommended them.



are you following a particular book? advice of a nutritionist?

i'm interested in doing something like this to kick off summer. i did the whole South Beach thing, and that was torture, and made me feel incredibly lethargic and dull.

The colon cleansing I'm doing is not an enema. That's what I thought you meant.

I do a lot of cleansing and have followed more formal regimens in the past but this one's kind of loose (no pun intended, lol), doing my own thing based on what I've learned over the years. Since one of my closest friends is a nutritionist, I get his advice almost everyday, lol, and take a lot of supplements. Right now I'm taking some herbs in pill form that are absolutely amazing for colon cleansing, and the enzymes are for a specific minor but annoying issue but they have a powerful overall detoxing effect. Because carbs aggravate this health issue, the low carb diet is helping a lot. I'm drinking tons of water and this crazy stuff called Kombucha Tea that has changed my life during the last 8 months. There are so many different kinds of cleanses--from juicing to colonics and then the random thing I'm doing--it just depends on what your goal is and what works best for you. I'm not much of a cook so I like cleanses that involve herbal pills and beverages, and I'm not willing to starve myself on a liquid diet but there are some great ones involving liquids and soups. With any of them, there are about 2-3 days of headaches and sleeplessness, and then the high energy and deep sleep kick in. I actually called in sick yesterday because I felt so horrible (it was day 3, usually the toughest for me) and today I'm a new woman.

I know I've read a couple articles about patients recovering from serious injury, eating dark chocolate to speed the healing process. I'm all for believing it!
Dark chocolate study
This was the only reference I could find for the time being.
