I did not see this earlier. All I can say is way, way too much information.

Chocolate is effective against too soft stool, btw, not the other way round.

I rarely crave chochlate, but I found that drinking tea or yerba mate kills that craving.....with far less calories.


I like chocolate. I dont want to not want chocolate ..thanks all the same. Sheesh! We are talking about bloody chocolate ...not raping nuns... :rofl:


I don't believe anyone made those suggestions. You posted that you had weight control issues:

Given that, I thought you might appreciate a heads up to a potential way to satisfy your chochlate cravings with fewer calories.
In reading the scriptures, there are two kinds of mistakes:
One mistake is to cling to the literal text and miss the inner principles.
The second mistake is to recognize the principles but not apply them to your own mind, so that you waste time and just make them into causes of entanglement.
