    Lovely to see you again Scooter, and to hear you're still at target. I've read all the good advice and tips above and would just add one thing myself. You don't have to have a drink! As a serial dieter, before Dukan too, I soon learnt that I far preferred to eat my food calories rather than drink them, and nothing has changed for me in that regard!

    I can still enjoy myself too! My sister likes her tipple, and recently lost 4 stone on SW (with weekend gin + slim lines) and now drinks far less. Because she has more confidence in herself.

    We're all different and, as with your self devised "Conso", do what feels right for you! As I once retorted to a half drunk guy who just wouldn't accept that I didn't want my glass topped up endlessly: "I'm interesting enough without it!". That shut him up!

    Hi maintainer - yes I totally agree I've always preferred to eat calories rather than drink them! On other diets I've done in the past I would much rather save points or calories for food rather than drink - that's why I managed to do dukan for the last 18 months without touching any alcohol - it doesn't really bother me - the last two Christmases I wouldn't have minded a drink as everyone else was having a drink but I wasn't that bothered - it's just this fancy dress disco I'm going to because I'm quite reserved I know without a tipple inside me I will be sat there in my fancy dress costume not dancing feeling silly but with a drink inside me I will be up dancing having fun!! I'm not going to continue drinking after that night it will be just a one off but I didn't want to have a drink on that night for the first time in 18 months and then be really ill as my body didnt know what had hit it!! :-) I won't be in ketosis at all whilst on conso will i? (dont really understand much about it ) I've read on here drinking whilst in ketosis = very ill - thanks xx :-)

    Hey Scooter, on the Dukan diet you're only in ketosis during the first two phases so attack and cruise, for consolidation and stabilisation you're no longer in ketosis. As soon as you start eating carbs and sugars again, your metabolism goes back to normal.

    Your body is in ketosis when you stop feeding it carbs and sugars and it's used and burnt up the sugar/ carb stores it's kept hold of for a rainy day. Normally you're in ketosis by the 3rd or 4th day of attack.

    Hoped that helped explain and clear up the confusion
