Eating Chocolate On A Low Carb Diet!

When it comes to chocolate, darker is usually healthier. Dark chocolate is generally made with a high ratio of chocolate solids and very little added sugar. 

Choosing low carb chocolate

  1. Choose dark chocolate made from at least 70% cocoa solids
  2. Choose chocolate that hasn’t come in contact with any gluten-containing grains.
  3. Select chocolate produced organically by people working under fair conditions.
  4. Choose specifically labeled low carb chocolate.
  5. Double check the label for net carbs and hidden carbs.
     

The chocolate rules

For health benefits and weight loss, dark chocolate enjoyed in moderation on a low carb diet is possible – but there are rules.

  1. Set a “chocolate limit” and eat only a realistic amount – a few square inches.
  2. Count your carbs and your calories. Be strict, honest and accurate.
  3. If your cravings for sweets increase, reconsider your decision to eat chocolate.
  4. Eat a maximum of 10 net carbs per hour to avoid insulin spikes.
     

Your best chocolate choices

Low carb chocolate is readily available online and in retail stores. The amount of choices is mind-boggling. These all-natural choices are the highest in nutritional value and the lowest in net carbs.

Eating dark low carb chocolate rules:

 1. Natural dark chocolate

Dark chocolate can be a part of your low carb diet or keto plan. Dark chocolate is low in carbs and contains powerful disease-fighting antioxidants. Use the darkest chocolate you can find with real cacao and cocoa butter.

2. Organic raw cacao nibs

  • Navitas-naturals-organic-raw-cacao-nibs
  • Organic raw cacao nibs are “nature’s chocolate chips,” boasting a strong, raw dark chocolate flavor. Snack on these chocolate nibs or use them in recipes.
  • Plentiful source of antioxidants and magnesium

 3. Organic cacao powder

Cacao powder offers a rich taste and bold chocolate flavor. Viva labs cacao powder is made from criollo cacao beans – the highest quality cacao without bitterness.

4. Low carb cocoa powder

  • Viva labs cacao powder is unprocessed, retaining important nutrients like magnesium, calcium, iron, fiber and protein.
  • Antioxidants in cacao provide cellular defense against the effects of free radicals, improving the look of skin and promoting cellular repair and rejuvenation.
  • Lift your mood, elevate energy and burn more fat. Add cacao to your favorite cup of bulletproof coffee and smoothies.

 5. Atkins low carb chocolate

  • Atkins endulge low carb chocolate bars
  • The atkins company features an endulge line. Each low carb chocolate treat has less than 4 net carbs. Grab three free full-size atkins bars (and the quick start kit) here.
  • These chocolate bars do have artificial sweeteners, so track your progress. Some low carbers experience a diet stall when eating these types of low carb treats.

6. Russell stover low carb chocolate

  • Russell stover low carb chocolatelow carb chocolate speeds weight loss has a flavored line: pecan delight, milk chocolate dotted with almonds, truffles and french.
  • Stover chocolates are artificially sweetened and have 0.3 net carbs per square.

 
7. Amber lyn low carb chocolate

  • Amber lyn low carb dark chocolate
  • Amber lyn chocolatelow carb chocolate speeds weight loss strives to give the “perfect chocolate experience” – especially to low carbers. Their rich, low carb dark chocolate has only 2 net carbs per bar.

8. Hershey sugar free low carb chocolate

  • Hershey’s 1 carb chocolate barslow carb chocolate speeds weight loss are available at popular drug stores and grocers.
  • This corporate giant’s 1 net carb collection of chocolate bars come in three flavors: chocolate candy, chocolate candy with soy chips and chocolate candy with almonds.

Should you be eating chocolate?

Thinking of adding chocolate to your low carb diet? first, weigh the pros and cons.

Chocolate pros

  2. Chocolate often triggers sugar cravings and carb binges.
  3. Many chocolates have soy lecithin, an emulsifying agent.
  4. Some chocolates are cross-contaminated with gluten grains.
  5. Global chocolate is sometimes made in exploitative or unsafe working conditions.

I am 26 years old but i am having heavy back pain and over bleeding problem because of fibroid problem.

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You will have to consult your gynecologist for bleeding due to fibroid because that is a must. You can also start with conservative management for your lower back problem: - maintain proper posture of your lower back while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication which suits you - physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc in case you are having back pain. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

5 Tips To Stay Healthy If You Sit At A Computer All Day

M.Sc. in Dietetics and Food Service Management , Post Graduate Diploma In Computer Application, P.G.Diploma in Clinical Nutrition & Dietetics , B.Sc.Clinical Nutrition & Dietetics
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai
5 Tips To Stay Healthy If You Sit At A Computer All  Day

1. Give your monitor a second look.
If your screen is planted directly on your desktop, it’s time to ask management for a raise — for your computer’s display. According to Dr. Jim sheedy, director of the vision performance institute at pacific university, the top of your the screen should be level with your eyes. The ideas is to get the eyes looking down about 10 degrees. If it’s any lower or higher, computer users will adapt to it by moving their head. If your screen is to low, your head points down, causing neck and back aches. High displays, meanwhile, contribute to dry eye syndrome.


2. Poor posture? Take it on the chin.

Poor posture is something that every office-based employee should consider throughout their day. Most people sitting at a computer get drawn into the screen, which means they crane their necks forward. This imbalance puts strain on the neck and spine. It’s like holding a bowling ball with one hand, says Dr. James bowman, of portland, ore.-based solutions chiropractic. If your arm is vertical underneath, it puts less strain on the muscles, but lean that ball forward and your muscles have to compensate to keep it aloft. Sitting at a desk, that bowling ball is actually our head, so bowman recommends chin retractions, or making a double chin, to keep the neck and spine lined up underneath.
“it’s probably the most effective single exercise you can do for the upper back and neck,” he says.

3. Stand up for yourself.

The modern workplace was built around the concept of sitting, but humans’ ability to stand goes back millions of years. Buck the trend of the office era with a standing desk — or, if that’s too radical, a sit-stand workstation. According to research out of the university of minnesota and the mayo clinic, sit-stand workstations helped workers replace 25 percent of their sitting time with standing up, which can increase their sense of well being and decreased their fatigue and appetite. The jarvis desk can go from 26-inches to 51-inches at the push of a button, lifting up to 350 pounds of whatever's on your desk—including multiple monitors.
" I definitely feel healthier standing while working as it causes me to be more focused on my posture and ‘hold’ myself better in terms of my stomach and shoulders especially" says dan mccormack, who uses a jarvis desk at his home office in austin, texas.

4. Move it or lose it.

But why stand when you could walk? many offices around the country are getting wise to treadmill desks, which can help workers burn 100 calories more per hour over sitting, according to a study by the national institutes of health.
"The most important thing is to switch it up and work in different positions throughout the day,” says emily couey, eventbrite’s vice president of people. The online event ticketing service offers multiple workspace options including traditional sitting desks, standing desks, and treadmill desks, which couey says “people love, because it allows them move while they work — especially those with fitness trackers counting their daily steps.”

5. Pace yourself.

All work and no play makes jack a bad employee. Whether it's on their phone in the bathroom or on the computer in their cube, everyone takes sanity breaks to check their facebook or read some news. The pomodoro technique even encourages this kind of behavior by breaking tasks into “pomodoros,” intense 25 minute work bursts, followed by five-minute breaks.
Named because they can be measured using little tomato-shaped kitchen timers (pomodoro is italian for tomato), this method lets people work intensely and stave off distraction, yet rewards them with time to goof off, as well. If you don’t have a tomato timer handy, there are a lot of apps online to keep track of your sessions. But francesco cirillo, the technique’s founder, recommends using the real deal.
" you have to be able to actually wind it up,” cirillo says in his book, the comodoro technique" the act of winding up the pomodoro is a declaration of your determination to start working on the activity at hand.”

If your period cycle is less than 35 days interval then it is normal, even if dates change but if is more than 35 days interval, then to detect the cause you need to do some blood tests and ultrasound of pelvis. After which you may need medicines if any report is abnormal.

Dear lybrate-user kindly do not get worried. Ultrasound won't affect your baby. Many a times in high risk pregnancies ultrasound is done very frequently. Twice in a month won't affect the baby and don't worry your gynae doctor knows the best and will prescribe investigations only when they are necessary.
