HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
And since we are
celebrating Valentine's Day on the 14th, I wanted to give you some rules about
Rules of Chocolate
If you've got melted chocolate all over your hands, you're eating it too slowly.
Chocolate covered raisins, cherries, orange slices and strawberries all count as
fruit, so eat as many as you want.
The problem: How to get 2 pounds of chocolate home from the store in hot car.
Solution: Eat it in the parking lot.
Diet tip: Eat a chocolate bar before each meal. It'll take the edge off your
appetite and you'll eat less.
A nice box of chocolates can provide your total daily intake of calories in one
place. Isn't that handy?
If I eat equal amounts of dark chocolate and white chocolate, is that a balanced
diet? Don't they actually counteract each other?
Q. Why is there no such organization as Chocoholics Anonymous?
A. Because no one wants to quit.
Money talks. Chocolate sings. Beautifully.
Chocolate has many preservatives. Preservatives make you look younger.
Therefore, you need to eat more chocolate.
Put "eat chocolate" at the top of your list of things to do today. That way, at
least you'll get one thing done. - Author unknown
