    Hi I see that 1tsp low fat cocoa powder is a tolerated food I just wondered if that means I could have the skinny cow hot choc then as it's getting colder (and darker) up here and sometimes I quite fancy a hot choc in an evening.
    Anyone know if it would be ok?
    Thanks

    I'm afraid not. Skinny cow hot chocolate has 30% fat (Skinny Cow Instant Hot Chocolate (10g) in Tesco | mySupermarket), and the maximum fat percentage for low fat cocoa powder permitted on Dukan is 11%. (Apparently Tesco sells it in some stores...).

    Just to be neat and tidy here: 1 tspn per day of 11% maximum fat cocoa powder. Maximum 2 x tolerated items per day in Cruise. NOT Attack.

    I remember how well Branston Pickle sold on ebay when there was that fire and all the supermarkets sold out! (I had a stash over here, at the time, and considered putting some on - then realised most of it was out of date!!)

    That is perfectly true, by the way... I ate a LOT of chicken + veg and always had my little pot of measured out branston with me. The French girls here were intrigued!

    No sneaking required Sarah cos I lost my 11 stone on my own... doing my own thing... I only turned to Dukan after regaining 10K when I quit smoking!

    Hello! Yes I did it the old fashioned way... I honestly didn't do much exercise, leastwise not at the outset... and I think I do far more now to keep my weight low than I did to lose! I did used to smoke, mind you, which I'm sure helped in many ways... but it was a question of getting the mind in the right place - a wake up call, if you like... which, unfortunately, I can't see to get back at the moment!

    Did you have a "click" to get you going this time? Is anything different for you? I was 38, and had been very obese for a long time, and wanted to not be Fat and Forty! That was my thing!

    Darn and blast another thing consigned to the bin! Thought I had done well as lowest carb stuff on the shelf this Dukan likes to set impossible tasks!
    Will have a look for the value one though - what about the options sachets then bet they're a no no too!
    Hi alottolose "up here" is just north of Aberdeen are you anywhere near?
    Oh and well done Jo that's a fantastic effort!
