I was watching Dr Oz the other day. They had someone talking about a healthy diet. They said the best way to remember it is BEACH. B=breakfast I don't remember the others except that C=chocolate. They said we need dark chocolate in our diet! I said, "Hey I can live with that!"I will do that especially since it is dr's orders!!!What do you think?

Yes I have heard this before and I love dark chocolate. I try to have a piece everyday. What I do is buy a big bar of Herseys Special Dark chocolate then have a piece every day or every other day. It will usually last up to 2 weeks. Its great when you love something that is good for you, isn't it?

A piece?!?Are you kiddin' me? How about the whole thing! No,really I eat 4 of the mini bars with almonds most days. It's less than a serving size and seems to be just right for me. I enjoy it and have to limit myself. When I am depressed, I can eat most of a package, and I know that's not good for me!

The bar is the extra large bar so I usually have only one piece may on occasion 2 pieces. Let me tell you my mom buys a bag of M&M and will eat one color one day and another color another day till they are done. I think that is crazy. So one day she will eat all the green the next day all the red. I wouldn't be able to have that much self control.

Really love that idea . I love dark chocolates. I love eating SWISS bitter sweet - it is a dark chocolate, but others hate its bitter taste. Health wise, dark chocolates has an antioxidant and a lot of health benefits so why not go for it especially it is still a chocolate. Well, milk chocolate is more tastier and sweeter, but I get bored to its taste... so still dark chocolate is the best for me.

Actually, although others find dark chocolate as too bitter, I really like most of them. SOmetimes I can find some real dark chocolate and it is too bitter! But after I eat the dark chocolate for awhile I really dislike the milk chocolate!

I like dark chocolate. There are some that are so bitter I don't care for them. I am pretty picky about what brand I buy. But I like using real cocoa to make hot chocolate. It's more bitter than most people like, but I really enjoy it! It's good stuff!

I love dark chocolate and I think Dr.Oz is wise. There is a great deal to learn watching his show! I am glad that we do not have to give up all chocolate.
