    Newbie here.

    I woke up this morning and decided to try the Dukan diet. I'm one of the those people who just wake up and try something new. I've been thinking about it for a while, but going to have a real go today. Any tips for a newbie like me to do on the diet? Any advice is more than welcome.

    The main advice would be to make sure you eat enough protein. It may sound obvious but we see lots of people limiting how much they eat. If you want 2 whole chickens for lunch then go for it.

    Dukan is an easy diet but does require preparation, as most of what you're eating has to be refrigerated. And it's very difficult to find dukan-friendly meals when you're out and about.

    So read the book, plan your meals and then do a big shopping trip to make sure you have plenty of food in stock and never get hungry.

    And start a diary on the forum and keep posting your meals and stats, so that we can help you along the way! Years and years of collective experience on this site!

    Good luck! :-)

    There are some really great ideas. Plus this forum sounds like a brilliant place for support.

    I did some more research into the dukan diet yesterday and started making a meal planner. This morning I starting today with low fat bacon and eggs without the yolk.

    I brought some oatbran and not really sure what to do with it yet. I'll probably have a go at making some muffins later once I figured out which recipe to use!

    Why without the yolks? I've always eaten the yolks on dukan - it's the best part of the egg!! Make sure you have your oatbran every day - it's important :-) good luck

    I read somewhere to limit it to 4 yolks a week. Is this not the case?

    They say to limit to 2 yolks per day IF you suffer with high cholesterol, if your cholesterol is fine then eat away

    That's great news. Especially since cooking muffins. pancakes etc all use eggs I wasn't sure if that was included. Unlimited eggs are good.
