    In the grand scheme of things, assuming a choc is about 80 calories, then 640 calories worth is about a sixth of a pound of fat (1lb = an extra 3500 calories) so about 3 ounces. However, the glycogen gain may shoot up for a while. So if you have put on when you next weigh, only about 3oz is authentic and the rest will come away in time when you low carb again.

    What boardwitless said. I had a chocolate blow out yesterday (BIG TIME) and have gained 5.5lbs this morning in water and glycogen. Get back on it and you'll be fine. I've also discovered that chocolate most definitely triggers migraines in me - ouch, off to bed soon.

    Thornton's do a diabetic chocolate range. Not as low in carbs as the sort of low carb choc you might be used to, but delicious.

    I don't buy it often but when I do it is usually a wee selection of milk choc bar, turkish delight bar (very small) and choc covered fudge bar (again very small). In this way the potential damage is limited and I can enjoy a real treat without fear.

    Don't overdo these! Warning! Your digestive system will complain loud and clear.
