    I presume the 2% fat and 1.5% low fat cottage cheeses for sale in Morrisons and Waitrose respectively are no good for Dukan?

    Do you know where you can buy 0% fat cottage cheese from? Won't some have more sugar in to compensate for the lack of fat?

    Thanks!

    most of us use the Longley farm virtually fat free cottage cheese, Morrisons sell it and also asda, you can get it plain or with chives, it's really nice, I eat it every day

    Thank you!

    Haven't seen it in Morrisons but my local isn't that big which could be the problem! I may have to do without cottage cheese as Asda is a bit of a trek for me.

    I use Tesco's value one and that has virtually no fat at all. Tastes ok and I add chives to it sometimes.

    If it's a choice between 1.5% fat cottage cheese or no cottage cheese - I'd go for the cottage cheese.

    I had the same question. Plus, it freaks me out that there are carbs in the dairy and the bran. But, on a leap of faith I dove and it has worked so far. Yes, I am only on Day 2 but geez, 2+ pounds down already! That is more than I can say for other plans I faithfully stayed on for weeks and lost no more than 3 or 4 pounds total.
    Also, I read on a post here (one about ketosis and the lack thereof on Dukan) that as long as the fat content is no greater than 5%, it is safe but optimally ZERO is best. That is nice to know in a crunch when at work or traveling.

    There are carbs in everything - even meat!

    Dukan is a low-carb diet, not a no-carb diet.

    Fat is similarly there in some foods naturally -eggs, fish or meat for example. The important thing is not having them added and keeping them as low as you can. Also, distinguishing them a little - eg oily fish is specifically mentioned in the book as being good as the benefits outweigh the snags.
    DD has an interesting comment about diets that include fats, especially Atkins: when the body breaks down stored fat it passes into the bloodstream, where it joins fats that you have been eating; he thinks this is too much in the blood. Of course it's more complex than that, but I get the picture.

    I think I've just had a Eureka moment.

    It's about the difference between naturally occuring fats and carbs and "added" fats and carbs - and the post-industrial diet.

    Mainstream nutritional thinking in the last 30 years has demonised all fat - to the extent that now we fear eggs and children are being given skimmed milk to drink despite the fact that growing brains and bodies need fat. At the same time carbs have been added to our diets as fillers...

    Atkins, conversely, demonised all carbs, and suggested adding fat and oil to meals.

    The problem is not with the fat and carb in the food at all - it is with our post industrial ability to extract fat and carb and salt in huge quantities -white flour, corn oil, sugar etc - and treat these as if they are still real foods, to be added back as legitimate ingredients.

    A bowl of stawberries is sweet real food - yet I was brought up to think it was normal to sprinkle extra sugar on top, to spoon sugar into my tea, to thicken gravy with white flour - and that's before I start on the ingredients listed on shop bought products.

    Our diets have certainly changed and not for the better. You are completely right about all the adding back in, as a kid if it was frosted with sugar or salt then it wasn't food (mother was a dreadful cook). Our bodies need us to go back to basics and I think this is the crux of the Dukan diet. He starts by removing all the 'rubbish' and then allows back in the good stuff. I am about to have my first gala meal and feel very concious about what I am about to put in my body, which is a first. Part of me actually wishes to just stick with the PV. The only thing he allows is the sweeteners which I personally have a big issue with, everything else is natural.

    Hiya - I'm about to start this diet tomorrow so have bought loads of foods from the list but can't find 0% fat cottage cheese. I have bought a tesco light choices (1% fat, 3% saturates). Do you think this will be ok, as cottage cheese is one of the things I plan on eating most!! Thank you x x x

    That's the one I eat most often - and no problems so far. It's probably as close to er as you are going to find without making your own (there is a recipe for cottage cheese in the recipe section above)

    Hi there
    I'm new to the forum and am on day 15 of Dukan.
    I have a tub of cottage cheese every day and am glad to hear the Tesco one is okay! Of all the low fat ones i've tried over the last two weeks, this one for me is the tastiest. But i'm eat a lot of it as I only eat chicken the cottage cheese is a therefore a big part of my daily intake.
    I wonder if i'm eating too much.......

    If you're losing weight well, I wouldn't worry unduly. Once your loss slows, that's when you need to check such items as they are not fat free so ought, strictly speaking, to be "tolerated" foods subject to the 30g per day maxi rule. But that'll be later on, as you near target.

    In Cruise, dairy is limited to 1K. Why not post your detailed menus in the menu thread, and we'll soon tell you what we think.
