Food Intolerance to Chocolate

This is the last thing I want to discover as a foodie. I love food and I love chocolate. That being said, after observing how my body almost instantly reacts to chocolate – I am intolerant of it. I don’t know if that is the right wording. I am lactose intolerant, so I figure that chocolate intolerant may be the right way to say it. I feel it instantly in my stomach – this burning sensation. It’s crazy how quickly it happens.

My body gets mad very quickly and I find myself feeling crappy and ready to taste the acid that’s boiling up in my stomach. How much chocolate did I have. I had a small chocolate chip cookie and a couple bites of a brownie. I didn’t eat the whole brownie because it just wasn’t good. It didn’t have anything to do with how I was feeling it disagree with my stomach. I am a food addict – I would have normally finished it. After the reaction, I knew what it was. So sad. I love chocolate. I really do, however, if I want to remain healthy, the chocolate has got to go. Though I am saying this in the blog, it is hard to imagine me actually giving up chocolate. If I want to stay in great, fantastic health, I have no choice but to give it up.
