Dukan Diet FAQ: When Can I Eat Nuts on the Dukan Diet?
Although nuts are high in protein they do not appear in the list of 100 allowed foods because of their high fat content.
This means that you are not allowed to eat nuts or any food containing nuts in the Attack or Cruise Phases of the Dukan diet unless you buy Dr Dukan’s Gourmet low-fat chocolate and hazelnut spread with sweeteners. If you buy this product which contains quite a few other ingredients that are off limits you are permitted to enjoy one level tablespoon as one of your two daily tolerated items in the Cruise Phase.
This spread is not the only product sold by Dr Dukan in his official shops which break his own rules and it seems he doesn’t even know what ingredients they contain. To give you an example the Onion & Yellow Pepper Snack Vegetables are described as being “real vegetables without added fat” but if you check out the ingredients of the grilled onion snacks you will see they contain sunflower oil. Both snack vegetables also contain sugar – the onions have dextrose and the peppers have sucrose which seems very odd given Dr Dukan’s aversion to any added in sugar
