I don't see how thats better than anything else:
P 8g
C 68.3g
F 12.1g

Compared to options belgian choc
P 12.4g
C 53g
F 8.3g

ie lower in carbs and fat and higher in protein. What is the qualifying criteria? I spent ages looking for a chocolate that was low in carbs and fat last night lol!

I think any choc is off the menu for now - that makes life easier :p
I can't actually find any 'tesco value' cocoa or drinking choc online - I suspect my 'local' (which I think I'm automatically logged into) Tesco doesn't stock it. I just wanted to check the nutritional info, but have resigned myself to 'no choc', which is actually not been hard so far. Even though DH scoffs chocolate biccies nearly every night :(

Yeah was thinking to cook with but if the best thing to use is hot choc I'd use that. So does anyone know what to be looking for in terms of carbs and fats?

Hi Becca,

I can't get through to the Dukan web site at the moment but a French calorie site lists fat-reduced cocoa as (per 100gr):


Calories : 266 kCal
Protein : 24 g
Fat : 12 g
Carbohydrates: 16 g


see: Cacao (dégraissé) (100g) - TableDesCalories.com


And you are allowed max 1 ts per day (I think)


The problem seems to be actually buying/finding fat-reduced cocoa (not drinking choc which has all sorts of things added) in the UK.


Now I have some Green&Blacks cocoa powder here (not bought recently I hasten to add, and not used during this diet!) and that is per 100gr:
kCal: 350
Protein 23.6gr
Carbohydrate 13.6 gr
Fat 22.3gr


And in theory you are allowed HALF a teaspoon of that.

for the sake of a teaspoon its really not worth it is it. I was thinking chocolate custard would be nice. Nevermind!

Hun i bet it doesnt even taste chocolatey. When on the atkins i experimented with ice cream and green and blacks cocoa powder and tbh it was ice cream with powder in it. Not what i expected at all, ended up throwing it!
