I am planning to start Dukan with my partner as of Monday and have got (and mostly read) both the main diet and recipe books but there's quite a few things in them that the other half wouldn't eat as he doesn't like curry or spicy foods etc. What sort of things did you eat on the attack phase if you have fairly conservative tastes?
I also struggle with unflavoured yogurt - both ordinary natural yogurt and the greek stuff - and find that I really need to have yogurt quite strongly flavoured in general. What can I add to it? I know I can add sweetener I've also seen mention of adding jelly crystals but which ones do you buy and how much do you add? I also have lemon and strawberry essences in my baking cupboard - does anybody know if these are ok?
Also, has anybody got a sample shopping list for the attack phase? I don't want to end up eating too much or too little, and when it says "scrambled eggs" or "smoked salmon" in the book that's just a little bit too vague for my poor old brain. How much would you normally eat?
Oh, just thought of another question - the recipe for the oat bran muffins uses non fat fromage frais, presumably unflavoured but where on earth do you find it? I've been on several of the main supermarket online shopping sites and they only seem to list products for kids, and not a single pot of "ordinary" fromage frais in sight. (Mind you, that could also be my ageing eyesight that seems to go with my poor old brain!)
Thank you - and sorry to start off my Dukan experience with such a rambling first post!
