    Hi there

    Hello everyone, room for me?

    Started this diet today but i think i may have messed up already :(

    I noticed the cottage cheese I have is "low fat" and not "fat free"

    so does this mean i cannot eat it? It's onion and chive too :confused:

    Hello flowerpot... and welcome to Dukan.

    I've still not received my English book, and I am working from the French original (on which it certainly would not be allowed in attack)... hoping one of the girls with the English book can help.

    At any rate, eat no more until someone confirms!!

    We have a menu thread if you'd like to post...

    Welcome!

    oh cripes! I've always got spare food in the fridge at work here... want me to fire you over a chicken breast?!!

    Basically, stock up on chicken, salmon, prawns, eggs, white fish, tuna, and you can't go far wrong!

    Particularly because there isn't a phase "Maintenance", haaaaa!

    Phase 3 is Consolidation (where you add in certain things 6 days a week, always keeping 1 x PP...).

    Phase 4 is Stabilisation (where, in the French book at least, very little guidance is given... except to keep the 1 x PP, increase oatbran, avoid stairs, and "off you go"... Lots have problems here because most of us have no idea what "normal eating" is... And so that's where some help often is required...

    Before I started low carbing, I had stabilised for two or even three years, using the "80/20" system ("good 80% of the time, less so the other 20%)... while I lost weight before Dukan with "healthy eating", I had pretty much cut out bread etc., but I ate fruit and veg freely so had a fair few carbs going...

    Now, alas, having messed around too much probably with my metabolism with real low carbing, and quitting smoking, I found that "95/5%" even resulted in an increase!! So that's something I need to work on... (because my 5% was HUGELY overeating)
