    % fat and % sugar that is acceptable?

    Is there a limit that's ok.

    So for example I bought some tomato purée and it has sugar in not much but still some. So is there an OK amount per say 100ml/g?

    Kingly, basically the lower the amount the better but I do know what you mean about what is best.

    I follow these rules

    Diary 2g per 100g or less, if there is no choice, look at what there is and get the lowest fat of all. Yogurts/Soft Cheese/Milk
    Meat 5g per 100g for Beef/Chicken/Ham products
    Mince 10g per 100g (although I do end up buying Aldi and its not 10g, but it is the best so far I can afford)

    I also check out the carbs and if it seems high but the fat is low I will usually avoid it because I know we are supposed to be avoiding the carbs.

    Thanks for this that helps. What would you say was high carbs?

    What about sugar?

    I've never really been into reading food labels so now I'm not sure what is actually high or low!!

    I kind of assume the carbs are the sugars. I don't know about what is high or low, but I would assume that the lower the number the better. having said that, sweetner is very high in carbs, but 1tspn doesn't even register on the scales. Maybe look at what size your portion would be and think is that likely to be a high carb count.

    I have tried to buy Lo Cal, Lo Fat, Sugar Free all the way.

    If there are a couple of varieties of something you are interested in, try reading the labels side by side, esp the different between normal and lo fat. You'll be able to get an idea of what is likely to be good or bad. Sorry, can't help beyond that. Might be worth a google.

    Interestingly, this question has been asked a few times recently on the dukan UK website on their live chat. In all instances they were quite cagey with their response and rather than give away a what appears to be a big secret they always ask the client to send them the nutrition info of a particular food and then they tell them if it fits the guidelines or not. I guess if they gave away this info they'd lose subscribers?

    My comment was actually in reference to carb content, not sugar and fat, I just re-read the original post. Duh!

    Back in the good old days(!), the response used to be that the protein content of a given product needed to be higher than the sugars + carbs... These days, I get the impression that it's more a trial and error thing. ie, if it works for you (at your current weight and diet profile), why not. But that can change as your weight reduces so I always say, when you stall, cut it out! For instance, I've not had a great weight loss this week and, worse, I've been hungrier. The only thing I can identify is "cottage cheese". Now cottage cheese isn't ok in the original version of the diet in France as it's not 0% fat. I'll cut it out next week (once I've eaten the pot I bought for the weekend!)

    I use tomato purée if I really need it but to be honest if doing bolognese I just fry turkey mince and onion til cooked and add pasatta. If you leave to go cold I find the pasatta thickens up anyway so don't need tomato purée

    No sugar in the yogurts I make.

    By following the rules that Dr d says about the percentages we are already following the diet properly. Most things we buy are already very very low in fat, sugar and carbs. Only thing I know is that the oatbran has carbs in it, but we have to have the oatbran to help with cholestrol.

    Trust in the book and the diet, follow it and it works.
