Is it okay to have one square (11 grams) of dark chocolate a few times a week, or should I cut that out for a while? If I want something sweet, is it okay to have one date, or one teaspoon of maple syrup stirred into some canned pumpkin?JaemeParticipantFebruary 27, 2015 at 4:10 amPost count: 348
Hi KellySensei- Tough question, as everyone’s gut is different. I was able to eat a medjool date with a small handful of macadamia nuts right from the start. I was also able to eat a square of dark chocolate after the two week intro diet (and maybe could have from the start if I’d tried). This makes sense since the FT diet helped me figure out starchy carbs are my issue, which dates and chocolate have very little to none. Unfortunately it is trial and error, but only try one questionable food at a time for a week or so without changing the rest of your diet so you can track any reactions.
