My Secret Chocolate Fix

Here's my dark little secret: I still love chocolate.

Five years after WLS I sometimes crave chocolate and and occasionally I indulge. I would never punish my body with a king-sized candy bar or a hunk of chocolate cake, I know better than that. These days I keep a bag of Andes Thin Mint Parfaits in the freezer. About once a week for "dessert" I have two pieces and it is completely satisfying. Two pieces contain 5 grams of sugar and just over 50 calories. I break each piece in two so I have four bites and it does the trick without causing me to be sick or worse - regain the weight.

What is your dark secret for attacking those chocolate cravings?
