You can now have wine and dark choclate for valentins'Day. Just be careful it could rapidly drop blood sugar so eat something when drinking recommended by the ADA also limit to 5-ounce a day for women & two or less for men. Dark choclate is good and good for you. it contain resveratrol and coca phenols that help protect cells from damage. So enjoy Valentines day.

I think I will have to pass on the chocolate. I don't like to tease myself with things I normally wouldn't have. It's hard for me to eat one piece and not want another!

I totally agree with you London. I cant have any chocolate in the house or I will eat it. My self control is not so good, so I choose not to have the tempting treats in the house. It's hard on my kids but they are adjusting, and they still get treats. They just know they cant leave the stuff lay around and tempt me.

You can have anything you want, It has to fit into your overall
food plan. One piece of dark chocolate or a little wine. You
just give up other parts of your meal plan for that day. The
question is, is it worth it to trade fruit or other things your body
deals with for a treat and a higher bg reading?

I would drink the wine first and then enjoy the chocolate. I find I can tolerate a little more carbs after having a drink or two. I would also limit the chocolate to one serving as read on the label. At Christmas my mom gave me some sugar free chocolate candy. I ate one piece a day and it didn’t affect my blood sugar. My mom also gave me some peanuts and almonds at Christmas. Some relatives pay attention to what you say. I got all low carb treats.
