We’ve all been guilty of needing a chocolate fix and grabbing a chocolate bar from the corner shop.
But with more than 7 teaspoons of sugar in a Mars Bar and more calories than a Cheeseburger in a Bounty Bar it isn’t hard to see how making this a regular habit could undo your pregnancy weight loss efforts.
Today we are looking at the calories, fat and sugar content of some of the popular chocolate bars, and also offering you some much better options that you can make at home.
Our weight loss recipes will give you the fix you need, but without the high levels of sugar and fat that come neatly wrapped with the commercial chocolates.
Of course, this isn’t to say that it should be a daily treat, but when you really fancy something you know where to turn.
Some popular chocolate bars and a handy comparison:
- Bounty 63g bar (304 calories) – more calories than a McDonald’s Cheeseburger
- Cherry Ripe 52g bar (241 calories) – more fat than a medium McDonald’s chocolate thickshake
- Kit Kat 45g block (236 calories) – more fat than 3 slices of Domino’s Hawaiian Pizza
- Snickers 53g bar (259 calories) – more sugar than 3 Redskin lollies
- Twirl 39g bar (209 calories) – more calories than a can of Fanta
- M & M’s 49g pack (240 calories) – more fat than a Chiko Roll
- Mars Bar 53g bar (241 calories) – more sugar than a 250ml can of Red Bull
