What is the Best Low Carb Chocolate?

best low carb chocolateOne the the hardest things for me to give up when I changed my way of eating was chocolate. I mean I was literally addicted to Hershey Kisses. I would totally go through a bag a week.

Fortunately after following a low carbohydrate lifestyle, my cravings for chocolate went away for the most part. You see, sugar is very addictive and it triggers cravings. But once you have eliminated most processed sugar from your diet, the cravings diminish. Which makes it easier to say NO to chocolate.

But once in a while, a piece of chocolate would be nice. I often enjoy a small piece of dark chocolate after dinner.

The good news, chocolate is full of antioxidants. So it is actually very good for you and a good addition to your diet. The best chocolate for people is 70% or higher cocoa content. This is better for those who follow a Keto or Paleo lifestyle as well, because those chocolates typically contain less sugar. I prefer 86% or higher. It is very rich and a bit bitter at first, but you get used to it.

I like the Lindt Excellence Bar, 90% Cocoa Supreme Dark Chocolate as to me, it tastes really smooth and satisfying. And to me it isn’t bitter at all. I find one block is enough to satisfy me. If you are used to sugary chocolate, than this low carb dark chocolate may take some getting used to. But I find it really rich and I don’t miss the sugar at all.

But if you are really missing chocolate and the dark chocolate isn’t doing it for you, Then I suggest you try LILY’S Chocolate.  This chocolate is perfect for those who miss the sweet taste of sugar. It is 100% sugar free and tastes amazing! They are sweetened with Stevia so there is no worries about artificial sweeteners either. Lily’s Bars are naturally non GMO which is important to me. These bars come in 4 different flavors: original chocolate, Almond, crispy rice, coconut, creamy milk and my favorite is salted almond milk.

If you like to use chocolate for your baking then Lily’s also has Dark Chocolate chips make especially for baking all of your low carb treats. I like that Amazon ships these products in cold packs so there isn’t an issue with melted chocolate. It arrives fresh and yummy!

Hopefully I gave you a few ideas for your chocolate cravings. Have you tried the Lily’s Chocolate? How did you like it? Do you have another sugar free candy that your prefer?

  1. Thanks for these great tips! I looooove chocolate too and can’t seem to remove my cravings. Maybe it’s because I’m still eating a lot of sugar. I prefer dark chocolate but I find 90% too bitter. I think Im halfway of that with 45% dark chocolate for now. I will try Lily’s bars. They look yummy and seem like a great option with different flavors too. Thank you!

  2. Nice recommendation. It’s good to know that there are healthier brands out there which leave the GMO. At first a bar of chocolate might not seem like a big deal. But then comes the second, and the third… Let alone chocolate in other foods like biscuits. Let alone when you do this everyday. If you are constantly nibbling on some type of snack, then better make sure they’re not bad for you.

  3. Interesting post this is. I’m on a keto diet and I have reduced my sugar intake drastically to fit in well to my diet plan. I won’t lie, getting started was not easy at all as I had to neglect chocolate and most of my sugary delicacies. I didn’t know of this lily’s before but now that I do, I guess I’ll give them a try and considering they are a perfect fit into my meal plan, I’m perfectly okay by this. Thanks

    1. Thank you RoDarrick! And I wish you all the best with your Keto diet. How are things going so far? I’d love to hear about your success.
