    Anyone with compulsive overeating issues, whether arrested or not, has probably tried and sometimes liked, sugar-free chocolate or carob (natural chocolate substitute) with low or no sugar. Any low-carb dieter teaches themselves to love the taste of sugar-free chocolate. [Well, I, personally, can't wrap myself around the taste of it.] Diabetes could be managed in this very way, with sugar-free chocolate and chocolate substitutes. It is not the most natural way–but since when is a refined product like processed chocolate – naturally occurring?
