Going shopping tomorrow what would you ladies recomended are the essentials in attack phase, hoping to do this for around 7 days. Feel free to tell me if I'm doing anything wrong.

    Hello and welcome! Congratulations and it'll be fun having a soon to be bride on the forum again!

    Firstly I would advise you go to the official website and fill out their target weight questionnaire for your profile. It'll also tell you how many days you need to do on attack.

    I wouldn't start tomorrow as you've not got the shopping in so what would you eat?!! Get your menus planned, and read the relevant part of the book, and you'll find it all a lot easier.

    Good luck!

    There is a list on here somewhere of what foods you can have - stick to pure protein and definitely go to the official site to see how many days of attack to do and also read the book as it is invaluable - fantastic news you are to be a bride - what more incentive could you need? Good luck and don't start till you have everything in and are prepared! x

    Ditto what the others have said. How exciting you are getting married, me to next year ( hopefully) but some way to go for me on the weightless front first. I won't be a fat bride.

    Good luck on your journey x

    Hi ladies. Thanks for all the advice and good wishes, well I decided to start today as I have all the food that I need.
    for breakfast I had total yog with oat bran, it was very hard to eat! Lunch is turkey slice with cottage cheese and steak for dinner, 2 litres of water and 20 minutes of the 30 day shred level one. Does this sound about right?

    Totally fell of the wagon, so starting again tomorrow more determined than ever, with the partner in tow, it was so hard with him eating what he likes and some assignments to do so all I did was reach out for the chocolate.
    so very focused to start tomorrow got everything I need in, next assignments are due in 15 days that's when I'll struggle the most, my toddler who is 2.5 years old loves to bake so we will have to put that on hold for a while.

    still got 2 stones to lose dukan website says I should hit my target weight of 8st 11 by mid may, so I need to get going 19 weeks till the wedding argh...
    still not found the right dress, everyone keeps saying you'll know the one when you put it on but I've tried so many on that I find it hard to believe so we shall see.

    and how did we ever decide to plan a wedding in 5 months I will never know so stressful argh!!!!!!

    Enough rambling on

    Elinya, do you like porridge? If so maybe have your oat bran made into porridge with skimmed milk and sweetener - I love it otherwise look at making the gallette - recipe in the book and somewhere on this website again a nice way to use the oat bran.... Once you are on cruise maybe look at making muffins with your oat bran - my four year old loves them and we make them together every other day!!!! There are several different recipes on here for them but you will need silicone moulds for sure as the mixture sticks to anything else...... Good to have your partner on board - go for it!! x
