> I had the exact same spikes of BP with Nardil until my Pdoc told me to cut chocolate from my diet completely. It seemed a bit odd as the chocolate hadn't caused any problems for the first month or so but he was right. Stable BP since droping the choccies!
It's happened for me as well that foods that were fine at first starting causing problems later on. Chocolate was one of them. Cocoa and good-quality dark chocolate were a problem from the start, but inexpensive chocolate with hardly any cocoa content, like M&Ms, began causing elevated BP over time as well. (Almonds were another. I guess that means chocolate-covered almonds are out of the question, more's the pity...)
