    Stevia is terrible. Spikes insulin big time. Worse than sugar. Just go the 99% coco.

    At times my attention span is very short…or my free time is. These short to the point with "just the facts" are perfect for me. I save up the longer information for when I have the time and attention it deserves. Mixing up the length of video are perfect for me. I hope I am not alone on this, I would hate to see these shorties go away.

    I knew the answer, but still watched because chocolate is a serious thing to me. Wish u would've touched on the fact that chocolate doesn't contain a lot of nourishment. That's why you have to eat a lot of it to feel the benefits!

    caffeine is excellent for many health risks apart from being a Smooth Muscle relaxant. especially Diabetes 2, Alzheimers, Liver disease, prostate cancer and possibly bowel cancer. It used to be an old wives tale – coffee bad, don't drink too much. Except they found a dose related benefit, for example the more coffee you drank the greater the protection against liver disease there was. Coffee is one the highest anti-oxidant foods, and they found the lighter the roast the greater the anitoxidant concentration…

    Aflatoxin and Ochratoxin A are two mycotoxins that have the following effects:

    Neurotoxic (destroys nervous tissue)Immunosuppressive (suppresses immune function)Genotoxic (causes genetic mutations)Carcinogenic (cancer causing)Teratogenic (causes birth defects)
    These toxins are present in cocoa, coffee and cereal grains and their
    concentration greatly depends on the correct harvesting, fermentation
    and storage. Cacao farmers are generally poor and often operate in
    places lacking proper sanitary regulations. InΒ thisΒ study,Β 98%Β of South American chocolate sampled was contaminated with ochratoxin A andΒ 80%Β had a co-occurrence of aflatoxin.

    Actually. Dr Berg, it's quite the opposite, regardless of the science behind it. Chocolate will make you very sleepy at night within about 1 hour after eating. i don't know why, but it does, every single time. And you better wash your teeth the moment you finished eating it, cause otherwise, you'll fall asleep with Chocolate on your teeth. I've been using the Chocolate as sleep aid long time ago, when i had difficulty falling asleep. Maybe it's the magnesium in it, i don't know.

    I was a chocolate freak before I started the keto way of eating, but now that I've eliminated sugar from my diet, there's no way I'd feel comfortable eating any of it again. If I had one piece, I'd rationalize that it'd be ok for me to have a ton of it. Better safe than sorry!

    I just eat a small amount of 85% organic dark chocolate each day and don't worry about the tiny amount of sugar that's in it, as my diet is low sugar anyway.

    Excellent information πŸ™‚ Thanks… I've been having problems with my Blood Pressure (BP)… I have 3 cups of coffee in the morning, with a bit of Half & Half and some Stevia, but my BP is elevated in the morning… Sheesh! I had no idea that Caffeine could be the problem… I have Organic Cacao Powder. I think I'll start adding it to my smoothies… and cut out the coffee completely… I also drink a lot of Organic Ice Tea… That could be another one… Hmmm… Just wondering if Matcha Ice Tea might be a bit better, despite the caffeine…???

    Chocolate is a primary LOVE of my Life. So, THANK YOU Doctor Berg!!! Please continue to share ALL the wisdom you can on this topic. p.s. Using Cocoa powder I make ALL my own chocolate eats/ treats (and mostly always have.) Thanks to Dr Berg I have stopped using pure Sugar in my recipes, and am now using organic Stevia exclusively.
    Treat #1) 20 parts cocoa powder: 1 part Stevia: 5 parts boiling water, to produce a *Dark Chocolate Paste Good for eating w a spoon, with a spoonful of peanut butter, or almond butter.
    Treat #2) Pour 3 tablespoons of Heavy Whipping Cream over the top of a spoonful of almond butter & paste (item #1) in a small bowl. Use spoon until the bowl requires licking clean…. lol
    Treat #3) add 1 part treat#1 and 1 part unsalted butter to morning decaf
    Treat #4) blend 1 part unsalted butter & 2 parts treat #1 in a small bowl. Slowly lick spoon which is periodically dipped into mix.
    Treat #5) Dip raw pecans into treat #1 and consume.
    Treat #6) drizzle treat #1 onto a small cup of peanuts. eat w a spoon directly from cup.

    Most chocolates contain soy or soy lecithin, so I can’t eat any of them anyway. Highly allergic to all things soy! πŸ˜›. But those chocolates really do look delicious πŸ˜‹. 😩

    Chocolate without sugar? Lindt 85% (11g per 100g) or 90% (6g per 100g) is a very good option. Very strong, but take a look at the ingredients, and not only does it not contain sugar, its actually quite short and not a laundry list of soy and sugar. Its strength makes it hard to overeat, and its full of the benefits of chocolate without the sugar.

    I thought I had very strong chocolate cravings but after being keto for a year and experimenting with chocolate without sugar (but adding stevia) – it turns out the real craving actually used to be sugar because I don’t crave chocolate hardly at all anymore. But I take magnesium at night and Dr B says that helps.

    I might add that I have cut the volume of my coffee consumption as it tended to dilute my stomach's normal pH which is still quizzical at this new oil/fat eating regime, leaving me a touch nauseous. But have now solved the dilema. Adding lime/lemon juice to my coffee (which I drink black) made all the difference, and is now an advantage as it adds some acid to the stomach fluids during the day.

    Thankyou Dr Berg. I eat 70% dark chocolate and I made the mistake of eating a whole bar one evening recently instead of 2 pieces, and I had a very restless night!
    I will look for chocolate with stevia when shopping for my next dark chocolate treat!

    Chocolate always seems to make me feel better and more relaxed. Part of that may be the short term feel good effect from the sugar though. Chocolate milk kind of centers me. I know it is not good for me (esp the sugar in milk and the pasteurization and homogenization,etc), and i am limiting my intake. Taking this up another notch.. milkshakes really make me feel relaxed. I wish food that were good for me could do that. oh well, i must eat for nutrients, not satisfaction. I get it, but i will miss the enjoyment.
