    Dukan Live Chats in a Nutshell

    Not sure if this has been done before so stop me if it has!

    I realised that there are live chats several times a week over on the Dukan site and the moderators give out a ton of information about what is and isn't allowed on different phases.


    Some of the questions are a bit rubbish (Am I allowed chocolate cake on attack?) but there's generally some useful stuff there. I'm going to see if I can start a thread to capture the main points that come up each time as the chats don't seem to be archived anywhere. To be honest, even if they are, there are so many daft questions you only find a couple of useful bits of info each session and it'd be very dull to trawl through!


    I'm just going to summarise details given out during the chat – please don't shoot the messenger!! Am also going to be arbitrarily deciding which points are most relevant to most people and leave the rest out – if you think I missed anything, just add it in! Any points in inverted commas are quoted verbatim, the others are my summary.

    So, here are the key points from the 11thJuly 2012 chat.


    • Muller light vanilla yoghurts are tolerated items so you can have up to 2 a day, from cruise onwards
    • Quorn sausages (per 100g: 12.6g protein, 11.6g carbs of which 0.3 g sugars; 6.8g fat of which 0.6g saturates) are ok as they do not contain too much fat.
    • Hemp milk is too fatty for any phase
    • Up to 750g of soya milk a day is ok (this was in reply to a question from someone who's lactose intolerant so is probably instead of, rather than as well as, other dairy for the day)
    • Up to 300g of sugar free jelly is allowed from cruise onwards
    • At one point in time there were mixed messages about whole eggs and egg whites. You can have an unlimited amount of eggs, especially egg whites if you do not have high cholesterol.”
    • In consolidation you are allowed to have 220g of starches per week (to be taken at one time and not spread out throughout the week) and so you can make that couscous, lentils, or peas; or even a combination, it's up to you really.
”
    • Try crisping up unrolled crab sticks in the oven (10-15 mins at 180C) if you're missing crisps. [Um.....I mentioned not to shoot the messenger, right...?]

      That's all I gleaned from that chat, will report back once they've posted today's gems.

    Made it to True Weight on 30th July 2012, 7 weeks + 1 day after starting Dukan.
    Lost another 4 lbs between August and November 2012

    Gained a stone between December and August....taking me 10lbs over TW. Damn.

    Starting again in August 2013 with a mix of Dukan and general restraint, mindful eating and determination

    Here are the key points from today's chat (12th July 2012)

    - You can substitute 700g of plain soya products if you're not having other dairy products that day

    - Beef jerky is ok but try to find one low in sodium and fat

    - Tenderloin is ok but only very occasionally

    - Gammon is ok occasionally but only if it is low fat and has been well soaked to remove the salt

    - Green tea is useful as a diuretic but avoid it if your iron is low as it can inhibit absorption

    Haha, Willbie, me too - I have every intention of trying this too, just know not all Dukanettes out there share our passion! Mmm, peelable fake fish. What's not to like?

    Let me know how you get on! Jx

    Glad these are helpful, here are the key points from today's chat (13th July 2012):


    • To combat constipation, increase your oat bran intake to 3 tbsp per day plus 1 tbsp wheat bran, dink almost frozen water preferably in the morning and do some abdominal exercises in sets of 10. You can also have 200 grams of stewed rhubarb or some goji berries: one table spoon on your PP days and two on your PV days. Eat plenty of green vegetables on your PV days (spinach, salad...) and you can also have one tea spoon of linseeds per day as a tolerated item
    • In case of stagnation, increase physical activity and avoid all tolerated items for 4 days
    • It is normal to encounter ups and downs and even stagnation during the diet as the weight loss cannot be linear.
    • It is not a good idea to do extra attack days as your body could get used to pure proteins and might not respond anymore.
    • Losing weight is a marathon, not a sprint. [Yep, they actually said that!!)
