    Fat Girl determined but a little bit rubbish


    This is my first time on a forum so please bear with me - ive been dieting on and off for years, i get fatter each time somehow and its just about killed me because i dont know what else to do - im now wearing my dads t-shirts as pyjamas and i cant see my feet anymore. Not that i liked my feet particular, just would be nice to thave the option to look at them when i want to. SO today i started the Dukan Diet! My problem is that if i dont see results super quick, i eat an entire packet of digestives in self-pity. So im assured that the Dukan Diet is the way forward for fast results and given im a meat lover, apparently its doable.

    Only thing i am terrified of is the lack of bacon. I think its a crime to cut bacon out of my life. An actual crime. But apparently Monsieur Dukan thinks otherwise so ill give this a bash.

    Day 1 of attack phase. Going for 7 days as a start - a week isnt that long surely?

    DOes anyone have any hints or tips for me?

    Ive not got the book so im just going by the websites and blogs online. I knew if i didnt start today then waiting for the book to arrive id lose interest. SO have grabbed bull by the horn and made myself scrambled eggs for breakfast. Are eggs really unlimited? Excellent! Im thinking steak and dippy egg, ham omelettes and lots and lots of salmon and chicken - all lean of course!

    So here goes..... think im going to need the help of experience dukan dieters..... HELP!

    Your post made me smile... :-) so yes you are funny!
    The best length of attack period is dependent on your start weight and only the really obese are recommended to go for such a long as 7 day period as, otherwise, he's found little difference in the losses between 3, 5 or 7 days. So let us know your current weight and height and/or go onto the official Dukan site, don't sign up or anything, but there's a calculator there to tell you how long it recommends. Or just do 3 or 4... On this site you can update your profile with your start statistics which is helpful too when advising.

    More recent editions of his book have restricted egg yolks somewhat. Previously he used to say "unless known cholesterol condition" but, given that the majority wouldn't have a clue, there are many other things we can eat other than just eggs (which I adore). So I'd be reasonable (say 2 a day max?).

    Ham is a bit of a dubious one too as very salty and (if you read the packet) often has many chemicals and even sugar added. I stay away from the packaged meats unless really in a bind as they are convenient.

    One thing you will need to get in is oatbran. Careful that you buy oatBRAN... Tesco sells it (as does Holland & Barrett and other supermarkets most likely). On attack, you're allowed 1.5 tablespoons a day. Check out our recipe section and see what we do with it (muffins, galettes, bread, cakes...). And not only does oatbran have good effects, it's also very filling and helps ease the boredom of what can be a long diet.

    Finally other tip would be to plan your meals in advance to be sure of having everything in you need. Read our FAQs. Ask your questions. The book can be ordered (it's only about a fiver) to help fill in your knowledge and there are some recipes in there...

    That's all I have time for!

    Good luck

    CBF, I don't post very often but this diet is fantastic for that initial weight loss. I lost 9lb in a week and it as exactly the start I needed and you by what you have said, good luck you will soon see your feet and eventually biet your toe nails if you so wish xxx Great advice there from Jo, here is nothing our Jo doesn't know about Dukan. Keep you diary going and record all your food, and drink as much water as you can x
