Good question... I dunno what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I discover an answer. You should email the people at Dukan Diet as they probably can answer it..
OOOpps! Since I am new at this I didn't think to look at the proteins. Mine only has 6g protein, but only has a 100 calories and is sweetened with sucralose. I guess I'll have to find another brand. It's hard to find a good yogurt with the right requirements as most yogurt in my area is in 4oz or 6 oz containers. I did find one that met the protein/caloric requirements, but had 17g of carbs...is that to many carbs? Is the limit 12g? Thanks so much for your help!..
6g is okay. just use higher protein items for your other protein/dairy servings during the day. a lot of people use the dannon or yoplait even though they are light on protein and higher in carbs. one a day shouldn't impact you. if you are near a Target, their FF Archer Farms yogurt has higher protein stats. in my opinion, the best option is greek yogurt with 15g of protein.
It is usually my staple for breakfast with fresh blueberries. greek yogurt is tart though. some don't like it and others sweeten with splenda, SF jam or SF syrup. the one drawback to the greek yogurt is the price as it is considerably more expensive than the other ones that are often on sale..
There are threads with other yogurt options. do a search (advanced search/titles only) on yogurt and you will pull up a bunch of threads...
Thank you so much. I don't live near a Target, but I will check out the threads on yogurt. I love the pic of your cat! :-)..
I have found the store brands of fat free yogurt have 7 gr of protein. Kroger has their own brand and so does walmart. I found it very surprising that weight watchers brand and even yoplait do not have the right amount of protein. Good luck in finding them...
I always read on these threads about the proteins and grams of this and that, but I have never figured out how to find out all of this stuff. I am very serious about losing this weight, and want to do it the right way. Can someone please tell me how to find out all of the extra information that all of you oldies seem to have. I am pretty sure that I am not the only newbie that would like to know this. Also, thanks to all of you seasoned Dukan Diet eaters, for all the great info and recipes that is left on these threads. This has become an obsession with me, to look and read a few times a day.
God Bless ya!!.
The guidelines that you want to follow for a protein/dairy serving (when your meal planner gives you the option as they are interchangeable on many of the Dukan Diet plans) is up to 100 cals, no more than 3g of fat and at least 7g of protein. you should also try not to exceed 12g of carbs but most of the protein/dairy options will not have too many carbs (you will see carbs in yogurt because of the sugars). this will allow you larger portion sizes of proteins that Dukan Diet provides (generally 1 oz of cheese, lean meat, fish, etc.) because it combines the stats of both the protein and the dairy guidelines. the other stats are listed below:.
From posts of info received directly from Dukan Diet counselors:.
1 Vegetable Serving = 5 g. carbohydrates, 2 g. protein, 25 calories.
1 Fruit Serving = 15 g. carbohydrates, 60 calories.
1 Low-GI Carb Serving = 15 g. carbohydrates, 3 g. protein, trace of fat, 80 calories.
1 Fat Serving = 5 g. fat, 45 calories.
1 Protein (lean) = 7 Grams of protein, 3 grams of fat and 55 calories.
1 Dairy (or Dairy/Protein) Serving = 12 g. carbohydrates, 8 g. protein, a trace of fat, 100 calories. for yogurt you can go up to 120 cals, 7+ gr protein & no more than 3 gr fat once per day..
Free Foods = A food that is 20 calories or less... You can add 2-3 free foods to your meal plan..
Thanks for getting back so quickly, but where do you find all this out? Is there a book or guide to follow? I am confused, or maybe just plain dumb...sorry!..
Lol. just tips and information that you pick up from the threads. I know it can be frustrating when you first start out. I think Dukan Diet sends you the bare minimum info so that you don't get overwhelmed with the program. if you look around the threads, you should be able to find the extended lists of fruits and vegetables. if you haven't found that yet, let me know and i'll post it...
