I agree with BELDAME~having Splenda {sucralose} ISN'T HEALTHY in the diet.I look at most of the list as stuff i USED to eat and don't anymore. The only thing on the list I have had that does help is the chocolate Cheerios with SIlk SOy UNsweetened Almond milk {15 calories for 1/2 cup} . That does satisfy.

It would be super to print out this list and keep it in a place that I refer to.

Sometimes we forget what was on the list, it would help to be able to review it.

The list is great, and once in awhile chocolate is a treat, this list makes it easier to select one that is sensible yet satisfying.

I would rather slowly savor one really good dark chocolate truffle than any of the suggested chocolate fixes in the article.

I love Godiva dark chocolate. It is rich and meant to be savored.

Personally I go for a couple of Dove's Dark Choc pieces a day for my heart, of course. ;-) They are rich, creamy and satisfy.

Some days, my breakfast is soft tofu in a blender with a banana, peanut butter, a couple of tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder & some sweetener. Protein fix and chocolate. :-)

These are great ideas. Some of them I wasn't aware of. Thank you for sharing.

The home-made suggestions are by far the best. A large percentage of the suggested pre-packaged "chocolate" items are chemical-laden junk.

What about a square or two of quality dark chocolate?

These items are good, but "cure" the cravings is a stretch..............really. They do help, but a love affair with some foods is there to stay.

Thanks! I love the homemade choc. covered pretzels, raisins, and popcorn ideas. Will definitely add as a snack. Oh, I also LOVE choc graham crackers with soymilk, but I tend to get a little carried away them :)

I split a bar of Cadbury's Dairy Milk with the kids once a week, and have a McVities Milk Chocolate digestive a few times a week. Delicious. If you're going to eat this kind of stuff, why screw around the the 'diet' and 'lite' stuff? Eat the real thing sparingly; you'll enjoy it much more.

Also, once in a while a girl has to sit down and have a big old bowl of Cocoa Puffs.

Many of your suggestions contain sucralose (Splenda). I don't know about anyone else, but that stuff wreaks havoc with my digestive system. Horrendous abdominal cramps, bloating, and flatulence that sounds like Cthulhu and a host of Old Ones are about to rise from the depths and slaughter mankind.
