Each two-bite mini chocolate bar in this package is made with 86 percent cacao and has less than a gram of natural sugar per serving. With notes of dried plums and cherries, these bite-sized chocolates are just sweet enough to feel like a treat without overdoing it on the sugar. For just $15, you get four packs, each with 12 squares in them. One reviewer writes, "I've found eating 1/2 a square satisfies me. I allow 1/4 of a square to melt in my mouth at a time. If you really like dark chocolate, I recommend these smooth, dark, not overly sweet chocolates as a special treat." The only downside to these bars is they aren't dairy-free, so if you're trying to watch your dairy intake, opt for a different chocolate on this list.
Fruit is something that should be limited because of the high fructose content. It is natures candy. Yes, fruit has vitamins and healthy nutrients, but you will be getting far more nutrients from your increase veggie intake. Choose nutrient dense, low carb fruits such as berries. Fruit such as pineapple, mango, and especially dried fruits, should be avoided. Also, avoid ALL fruit juices. They have an incredibly high glycaemic index, which will make your insulin spike (and start storing fat again). “If you are overweight, fruit is not your friend”.
It has been repeatedly found that in the long-term, all diets with the same calorific value perform the same for weight loss, except for the one differentiating factor of how well people can faithfully follow the dietary programme.[27] A study comparing groups taking low-fat, low-carbohydrate and Mediterranean diets found at six months the low-carbohydrate diet still had most people adhering to it, but thereafter the situation reversed: at two years the low-carbohydrate group had the highest incidence of lapses and dropouts.[27] This may be due to the comparatively limited food choice of low-carbohydrate diets.[27] 

Hi Maya. I LOVE your site!! Interesting, informative with fab recipes and ideas. Hubby and I have just started eating low carb and I have to say, we are not finding it too difficult and I already feel sooo much better!! I find the hardest part is choosing low carb veg, I feel as if we are not eating enough. Any suggestions on how to get more veggies into our diet?
What the researchers found was striking. The roughly 250 extra calories that the subjects in the low-carb group burned each day could potentially produce a 20-pound weight loss after three years on the diet, Dr. Ludwig said. People who tended to secrete higher levels of insulin did the best on the low-carb diet, burning about 400 extra calories a day.

I personally don’t count anymore as I want this to be as easy and sustainable as possible. I have had years of counting calories and points, and this is incredibly liberating. I just don’t eat any sugars, grains or high carb foods any more so I am incredibly low carb all the time. When I was starting out I counted, just to see where my carbs were coming from and it was an eye opener. And yes you are correct, to go into ketosis anywhere between 20-50g carbs/day. Find out what works for you.
Take it from one who knows; hunger can really make sticking to a healthy diet difficult. Once hunger strikes, your brain goes into hunter/gatherer mode and can cause you to seek out and chow down on the nearest convenient source of calories. Inevitably, this won’t be anything that’s good for you and will very likely be one of those foods linked directly to spiking your insulin – donuts and candy for example. As you know by now, eating lots of sugar does nothing good for your health and will cause you to gain weight fast. Not only that, sugar doesn’t fill you up and can even make you hungrier – so much for that satisfying snack! All my favorite sugar free snacks recipes here.
Action aside, the first 30 minutes or so was devoted to developing Yanin's Zen (heh) character, a young autistic girl born of gangster parents - Dad Masashi (Hiroshi Abe) is a non-self-respecting Yakuza member who doesn't have a body full of tattoos, and Mom Zin (Ammara Siripong) belongs to the Thai triads, and ex-moll of its head honcho. In a Romeo- Juliet styled love springing from only hate, only in Singapore do you have the sex scene severely edited, which I thought was important as that's how Zen was conceived. Violence is OK, but sex is zero here. Anyway Dad had to exile himself back to Japan to avoid an all out gang war, and Zin now becomes an outcast single parent, who has to struggle with cancer, as well as raising an autistic child.
The ketogenic diet is used to treat drug-resistant childhood epilepsy. It has become a fad diet for people attempting to lose weight.[39] Dieters trying this often do not achieve true ketosis as this requires extreme carbohydrate restriction, and maintaining a ketogenic diet is difficult.[39][11] Some diet advocates make misleading claims that the ketogenic diet can treat or prevent cancer.[14]
When picking out gifts for the special people in our lives, sometimes we are limited to diabetic candy. But just because it is diabetic chocolate, it doesn't have to be bland or lacking in flavor. Introduce them to the delicious world of GODIVA's sugar free chocolate and bring new joy to their life. But make sure to explain to them that the chocolate is in fact sugar free so they are not fooled by the deliciously rich flavor of the treats you give them. Once they realize that they can have this tasty chocolate without breaking their diet, they will be forever grateful to you.
At Asher’s Chocolate we want everyone to be able to enjoy a chocolate covered treat every once in a while.

Then don’t give up the fruit! Go for it. You sound like a fit and active person within the normal weight range. Generally the advice is to stay off excessive fruit, and high sugar fruit especially if people are overweight or have other health issues, then in that case fruit is not your friend. But with everything, eat within your personal carb limitations and eat to what is appropriate to you. Whole fruit is somewhat self limiting due to the fibre and water anyhow. You obviously have worked out a fabulous routine and it is working, so why change, stick with it Tom and enjoy 🙂

Hi Mylene, my first question will be did you substitute any ingredient in the recipe? If the outside is cooking faster it probably means that the center of the tortillas was thicker in the center. Also another thing could be that you did not squeeze out all the water from the zucchini leaving some moisture in the batter that make it harder to cook. Finally if it is not golden and the outside crisp too fast it could be a too warm oven. Always cook on fan bake mode to ensure that the tortillas cook well evenly. I hope this help! It is a delicious recipe and I make it all the time without any issue so it should work for you too 🙂 See you soon on the blog Mylene.

Those familiar with Pinkaew's martial arts extravaganzas with Ong Bak and Tom Yum Goong, will know roughly what to expect from Chocolate. Since the rumoured falling out with his main star of those movies, there's definitely some big shoes to fill, and Yanin fills them quite nicely, martial arts wise, though there were certain scenes which were quite clear that she's still a diamond in the rough with many edges left to polish. But that's not to put down her effort, except that I thought as a lady, her final delivery of those choreographed punches and kicks lacked some really hard hitting edge to them, and the curious observation that some required some speeding up, was left to be desired. What could also be improved, is the transitions between fights, because each seemed pretty much stand alone, even though you know that she's supposedly to be battling enemies continuously, but with each combatant, there seemed to be a "reset" to on-guard mode.
Hi Libby. Re foods to eat. Still a newbie and exploring all this. Re the foods for example cocnut cream- is there a specific brand or type you,should buy? Same with butter and meats- re grass fed versus grain fed. Coconut oil- is there ones you should or shouldn’t use brand wise. Lchf site says grass fed meat and butter. Does it have to say organic on the butter. Labelling is really bad in regards to this. And your cheeses- re Brie for,example- are they all they same or are there certain ones of them you have to buy ? This goes for all cheese that you can have to- are there ones better for you than others?

Dark chocolate boasts many added health benefits when compared to your standard milk chocolate bar: It's packed with antioxidants, additional nutrients, and is rich in fiber. But, the best sugar-free dark chocolate takes those health benefits one step further by eliminating artificial sugars, making it a great choice for health-conscious chocolate lovers as well as anyone with diabetes.


On the diet, you can get frozen and ready-to-eat South Beach Diet meals, along with some meals you make on your own. They also encourage you to buy South Beach Diet–branded snacks. The upside is that they’ll tell you what to eat all day and there’s little cooking involved (great if you hate your kitchen); the downside is that you have to buy your food through them, and the choices can become limiting. Plus, when you’re buying packaged foods, you’re not getting the full nutritional benefit you would from eating whole foods.


A few studies have documented allergic reactions from chocolate in children.[76] Other research has shown that dark chocolate can aggravate acne in men who are prone to it.[86] Research has also shown that consuming dark chocolate does not substantially affect blood pressure.[36] Chocolate and cocoa are under preliminary research to determine if consumption affects the risk of certain cardiovascular diseases[87] or cognitive abilities.[88]

Many people starting out go by the rule of 5g carbs per 100g. I totally empathise with you about fearing the fat. I slowly reduced my carb and slowly increased my healthy fats until I got to a comfortable level (which may be different for everyone). Don’t overdo the fat, we want to be using our bodies fat stores, but we do need to eat enough to keep us full and keep the carbs away. So eat healthy fat until full, eat meals until no longer hungry, and remove processed food from your diet and you almost become low carb by default.
Asher’s uses locally sourced potato chips, which get taken and turned into a delicious chocolate covered treat. Potato chips get drenched in our smooth and creamy chocolate to introduce you to one of our newer products, Chocolate Covered Potato Chips. These chocolate covered delights come in either milk or dark chocolate and are able to be bought in both small and large servings.
It is important to harvest the pods when they are fully ripe, because if the pod is unripe, the beans will have a low cocoa butter content, or sugars in the white pulp will be insufficient for fermentation, resulting in a weak flavor. After fermentation, the beans must be quickly dried to prevent mold growth. Climate and weather permitting, this is done by spreading the beans out in the sun from five to seven days.[54]
Made with 100 percent cacao, this chocolate bar is completely free of soy, gluten, dairy, and sugar — there's not even a touch of a sweetener. The bar itself weighs about 3 ounces, which reviewers mention lasts quite a while considering one or two bites of this rich chocolate bar is enough to satiate even the strongest chocolate cravings. In this pack, you'll get two chocolate bars for $12, which is a bit pricier than a generic store-bought option. But, most reviewers agree that after tasting this bar, they'll never go back to eating other chocolate. One reviewer raves, "I've gone to the absolute dark side — this is a quality chocolate, smooth, creamy and delicious."
