    Day 1 attack and newby!

    Hi, Good Morning all!

    Im getting married in 9 weeks and have toned up considerably (but not actually lost much weight) through exercise and healthy eating, id love to get down to 12 stone mainly for my honeymoon in 12 weeks (im 13 stone now) my mum has been doing the dukan and swears by it she has lost an amazing 45lbs and is going for 50 by the wedding which she will defo do - mrs motivated and all that!!

    I am 29, size 14, 5'10 and fairly active (sedentary job but 3/4 exercise sessions per week) If this helps paint a picture!!

    I have the book, and my mum for support but its great to have a place (here) to come and read others questions, tips, motivations and successes!!

    My food today consists of a boiled egg for breaky and one as a mid-morning snack, 3 chicken breasts and a good handful of prawns for lunch and I have some yogurt for a spoonful should I need something extra!! my next fitting of my wedding dress is at the end of july so I have 4 weeks really- a stone would be a real achievement!

    I would love for some hellos back and an update of progresses of your own?!!

    Looking forward to finding some dukan buddies!!!

    Catz x

    "pretty dead" is a bit cruel... we're here and about if anyone needs us but it's true that, apart from the odd diary posting, things are quiet! Hopefully that will change!

    Meanwhile good luck. I don't see oatbran in your menu, and this is something you ought to look into as it gives us some lovely options for recipes (muffins/cakes/bread etc... but Dukan style).

    Careful also not to make your meals too plain and boring as it'll make the long haul of the diet quite difficult. Why not check out our recipe section. Some very inventive cooks have given us some options to liven up, say, that handful of prawns or three chicken breasts (but I'm sure your Mum will have told you that... do we know her over here?)

    Any questions, don't hesitate.

    'Pretty dead' as in not that many people post, which is true. That's a commonly used phrase where I live, it's not an offensive term.

    Hopefully more people would post if they saw others using the forum.

    Thank you for your kind and supportive replies!
    Mum doesn't really do computers so you wont have seen her here, I had the oatbran pancakes/galettes with tuna steaks and a garlicy/lemony/yogurty sauce which was amazing! such a treat!!
    Its only 1 day but the scales showed a 3lb loss this morning so im feeling very powerful!!! I will definitely check out the recipe section, my fiancé is also doing it with me and as long as I can keep him interested in it I will be fine - I can handle boring food but him, not so much!xx

    Welcome Catz - I'm sure you will love dukan it's a brilliant diet!! Any questions just ask and someone will answer you - there's not much that Maintainer doesn't know about dukan!! I found muffins were an absolute must on my dukan journey - they are lovely and taste like you're being naughty!! I had them every day on cruise!! Stick with it and you will see the weight quickly dropping off - try looking on the recipe thread for some recipe ideas xx good luck :-)

    Thanks for your replies, I'm looking forward to making and trying the muffins- I LOVE cakes!!
    Today was good, boiled eggs for breakfast, chicken breasts for lunch, crab sticks to snack on, 2 cod fillets with prawns in a yogurt, lemon and garlic sauce and gallettes- I'm pretty chuffed with my gallette making abilities too! Makes me feel like I'm having something 'carby'!
    im going to do 5 days of attack to really get my head around it, and then step into cruise- one question I have since perusing the recipient section is 'wheat bran' is cropping up a lot- at first I thought it was possibly an alternative to oat bran but there are several recipes where they both feature....???

    Honeymoon- I'm sooooooo excited!! We're going to vegas for 4 nights, driving to LA and then flying to Mexico for 9 nights so skimpy sequinned frocks and bikinis are on the agenda- this bod better get bikini-worth pronto!!! And before you ask OF COURSE we're going to get remarried in the little white wedding chapel and OF COURSE by the man himself ;-)

    What's all your progress so far?xx

    Wow! That Honeymoon sounds amazing! No wonder you want to look your best! well don't worry, you're in the right place

    Wheatbran is a tolerated carb that you can add it from the cruise stage (I think 1 tablespoon per day) and it can really help to "get things moving" You have it in addition to the oatbran and it's good for things like cakes as it helps to bulk them up.

    Sounds like you're going great so far! I hope you're seeing lots on nice loses? are you weighing everyday?

    Losing a half stone in three days is very good and I am sure it is not all water.

    Well done!

    Hi LittlestWookie, That's really positive to hear, im sure you'll do great this time too!

    My scales showed a stand still this morning - but that's really ok if I can hang onto the loss ive already had this week, I've been reading on into the cruise phase and calculated that (3 days for every lb I want to loose) (if I don't loose any more in attack) is 42 days - Would it be ok to continue attack for another couple of days to accelerate this??

    Follow your body, when would have a day or two with no loss then suddenly 4lbs over night. I've always done attack phases longer than what it says but my body works fine on that.

    If you feel you can cope with 2 more days go for it xx
