Good or bad idea?

Totally a sugar freak and always want something sweet. I thought maybe if when I want something sweet, if I have some chocolate milk it may curb the sweet tooth and still be semi-healthy (as opposed to a candy bar or cake, etc.)

Do you think this is a good or bad idea?

  • Chocolate milk is, for those who've never investigated the Big Business that's the dairy industry, what the dairies do with the milk that's going bad after it's stale-dated & can't be sold as fresh or liquid milk. The chocolate flavor, and salt, is added to remove what is known in the industry as 'barn' flavours. Mmmmm... It's made from 'milk solids' (you know, what milk does after it's sat on a counter for three days in July) and other by-products of an over-supplied marketplace.

    What people who are 'total sugar freaks' need to do is stop eating sweetened foods. You'll have noticed that 'sweet' foods are no longer adequate, yes? That even peak-season raspberries or perfect oranges are not sweet *enough* anymore, right? That's because your taste has been skewed by your eating habits, to the point where you can't recognize a sweet food without a bucket of sugar added.

    Stop eating sweetened foods. In 10 days you'll be fine.

  • No, I still like fruits. They're plenty sweet.

    I buy white milk and add the chocolate.

  • Have an apple or a bowl of frozen blueberries. Too much dairy can actually leach iron and other nutrients from the body; chances are you are not eating enough fruits and vegetables.
